Finally, just got a call that the Gitzo GT3541xls came in! WhoHoo
Only 37 days since it was ordered

Now have to make a 3 hour run into the city from Algonquin Park to go pick it up!

Here is a pic of the new Gitzo GT3541xls standing over top of one of my old Manfrotto 055c metal tripods that served me well for decades past.
The new Gitzo stands about 6 foot 6 inches tall, It is topped with the Really Right Stuff BH-55 head.




And here is the new Gitzo GT3541XLS tripod in use!
(it is designed to allow you to shoot down on groupings of people)





I'll post a detail pic of the RRS BH-55 and clamp later on.

I wondered how you managed that last picture also. That's quite the tripod - amazing! I can see how it would be very useful for some things. I want to see the detail pictures of the head and clamp too. I'm still somewhat disappointed I didn't get the RRS head (though I've had no trouble with the Gitzo head I have).
