    Question Need help: Transportation of Tripodhead & Tripod

    I'm still very new to using a tripodhead with a tripod. I recently purchased a Benro Tripod with Tripodhead. How do you guys carry the tripodhead and tripod? Do you mount the tripod head with the tripod and leave it until you need it or do you keep both units seperate until needed? Do you carry the tripod with the tripodhead already attached or install the tripod head on-site? Thanks.

    Cheers

    All up to you....

    Your choice, esp if you are travelling over a distance and you may wish to lighten the load of your hands by keeping the parts separate (i.e. keeping the tripod head in your backpack) and the tripod in your hands.

    Else in my case, I prefer to keep all the parts together. Tripod + head even during transportation.... or monopod and head.

    Thanks for the advice bro. I was more concern about damage to the tripodhead during transportation (especially when going out on a shoot). But at the same time, I was worried of damage to the screw threads if I assemble and disassemble it. Juz my paranoid self I guess .

    Thanks for the reassurance bro. Still new with the tripodhead thing. I use to take shot either without a tripod or directly mounted onto the tripod. Feel unsure how to handle the thing. ha ha ha.
