So.. I have just bought an Arri SR3 super 16, it's 7kg with 400ft loaded mag. So including lens, video assist, and matte box it's looking like being 10kg.
I have about £500 for tripod and head, but I could poss pay a bit more for a real bargain. I've been looking at these below, but I it's difficult to make any decision when I can't find the specs of these and others..
So my questions:
Would you recommend any of these for an SR3?
When a tripod spec states it's max load, is that with some kind of built-in safe guard or is it's optimum use is with less weight than the stated maximum?
Would using a tripod at it's maximum load damage the tripod?
Do you tend to get better deals buying a tripod-head together or separate?
Obviously, if anyone has or knows of anyone with a suitable tripod and head for sale let me know.
Thanks a lot,
