RE: [Rollei] Rollei Users list digest V12 #81

I have found that the Rollei quick release made for the SL66 works very
well.  Stable and steady with a strong grip.

I feel out of the league of photgraphers who listed Tiltall, but here goes:

For years, I've been using a SLIK Universal 212 with native pan head.  I
never liked the quick release mount and thought it too unstable for a Rollei

Just this week I picked up a Velbon Mark 6 because of its weight.  I thought
it would be stable for my Graphic View II camera.  I will use a newly
acquired Giotto MH 5000 pan head with the Rollei.  It actually screws into
the camera base and has a substantial base to support the camera.  I will
use the Velbon tripod sans head for the view camera.
