Re: [Rollei] tripods

I agree with Ellis; I have two Sachtlers, a Tiltall and a Linhof (same
size as the Sachtlers and with lever locks). The tripod I use most often
is the Linhof -- everything about it is very precise. The Tiltall is a
nice light tripod, but I have no illusion to it being anything more than
it is: very simple and basic.
