    how about if main use is for tracking moving subjects?... is the movement smooth?... sorry for OT...

    Not smooth at all, not worth pay that kind of price for something that do not work properly.

    A wimberely sidekick with markins or even kangrapoche ball head is even much batter for panning, than the Jobu.

    As I mentioned earlier, I bought the jobu at that tiem because the wimberely 2 was not out and the jobu was lighter than the wimberely 1. But is was a big let down, totally useless piece of gimbal head. I sold it within a week at 1/2 the price.

    hi,
    have anyone try Benro C-068 tripot?
    I want it for travelling so light and short is the main concern but $$ is also one factor too.
    How about Gitzo GT1540 and GT1540T?

    Pls share your experience

    Just buy an equivalent Benro tripod and you get the bag.. You can put the Benro aside while you carry the Gitzo or you can give it to one of us who will be glad to take good care of the Benro for you.

    People can't tell from far lah... Gitzo Bitzo Betzo Benzo Benro...
