In the late 1970s I had a Leitz Tiltall, which IMHO was a mediocre product.
In its day it was a fair value for the money, but in the current market its
continuing popularity eludes me. There are better Manfrotto/Bogen in that
price range. Dissatisfaction with the Tiltall led me to purchase a second
hand Gitzo that I still use today (literally, I have a project in the works
After 25 years of frequent use the Gitzo is as tight and functional as when
it was (almost) new. I think it a perfect match for a Rollei, not only in
utility but construction. I have heard "best possible" is the enemy of
"good enough," and while that concept has validity, it is particularly
satisfying to work (or fool around) with the best.
