Sorry for asking what may seem a dumb question.
It’s about tripods and their heads…question is how do you calculate the total weight
that a tripod + head can bear.
Say the tripod manufacturer says tripod can hold 2 kg.
And the ball-head manufacturer says the head can hold 3 kg.
Does this mean
1) the whole combination can hold up to 5kg
2) take the higher weight as the maximum load i.e. 3kg
3) Or only look at what the tripod can carry as ultimately, that’s what is bearing
the weight of the whole set-up.
Thanks for your answers.
