[Rollei] Tripods and Rollei


I use the Tiltall with my metal 8x10 Kodak Master Camera, (not the Kodak
Master View Camera).  But I don't use it with the 11x14 Korona. I tried
it once and it held okay but didn't seem massive enough, so I switched
to a Majestic for the big camera.

I also use the Tiltall with the 6008i and 2.8F and occasionally with
35mm cameras. 

Real men don't need tripods for 35mm.  :)

My son likes to use a Tiltall with the Coolpix 990.
