I am using the one in the first link, good enough, and faster to get levelled, the second link shows a maybe more fancy one, but is slower to set level. The weight of the first one is I think higher than in the second link.....also not easy to get, Cathay just don't want to order..........

I found it very useful for critical compositions where you need to stay level....you need to worry less now. I mean no need to worry about panning going haywire ...... it all depends if you need the camera to stay levelled, otherwise not necessary as the weight is quite considerable...

Die halfway your head... else how I grad???

Mine is accurate up to 0.2 degrees... and automatic. :cool: The manfrotto one only +- 5 degrees and manual.

Anyway, the tripod now belongs to NUS and the parts alone are too ex for personal use. Just the first prototype.

Heard it was passed down to this year FYP for refinement... perhaps you can ask NUS for the markII version? :p
