Re: [Rollei] What's your favourite tripod?

I have a couple of Gitzo's that I've used for years. For most things I use the smaller "reporter", it's light and big enough for the Leica's the Rollei TLRs and the small Plaubel View camera.  I also have a Gitzo 412 Tele-Studex with a geared center column that I use with the much heavier (15 pounds or so)Plaubel 4x5 View.  Frankly, I don't use the larger view camera and the larger Gitzo much because lugging a 60 pound kit out into the tall grass is gotten to be very little fun. I'm kind of surprised to see that gitzo seems to have stopped making the geared center columns though ... with those heavier cameras, it seems to me you really need them.
