    Thanks
    As far as I can tell, no. I have more problems with wind/breeze/kay poh people but that's another story Removing the center column also allows the tripod to go all the way down to ground level.

    Yes, mine is a manfrotto, cannot remember model number.

    Glad to be of help.

    I myself luckily didn't spend too much money changing and changing and changing tripod system. I have had and used my old old old Velbon which has served me well; but after 8 years, the legs don't hold steady anymore and the head needs to be turned so tight so not to move. I finally finally got the Gitzo 1325 with a Kirk BH-1 ballhead and haven't looked back since.
