          Comments about Sachtler 0450 FSB-6T Head with 75CF Tripod and Mid-Level Spreader:

          The Head and Tripod is excellent. Very light, but found myself with two issues.

          1) The speedlock legs often get stuck, which requires me to bend to reach and seperate them.

          2)It seems that my panning arm has issues. It's either too loose, but only seems to be overly tight when tightened. Slightly Annoying.

            Comments about Sachtler 0450 FSB-6T Head with 75CF Tripod and Mid-Level Spreader:

            The tripod is very light. I am able to move around an ENG shoot very quickly and easily, either carrying the camera on the tripod or separately. It's easy to clip & unclip the camera on the platead and adjust the legs and balance the camera. I would recommend it. The only negative is that I have not been able to balance the camera on the plate because it does not go forward enough. I've had a couple of instances when my camera started to drift backwards, so now I make sure I lock it down completely if I am leaving it alone.

            Comments about Sachtler 0450 FSB-6T Head with 75CF Tripod and Mid-Level Spreader:

            Yes its expensive, yes its uses a lot of plastic but its definitely worth the cost. I have a JVC GYHM700U and was shooting on Manfrotto sticks but still had a considerable wobble when zoomed all the way out. Talk about heavy, it weights about 15lbs. The Sachtler is about 9-10 lbs and solid as a rock. I tested it pretty extensively and found little to no wobble at the end of the zoom. The carbon fiber legs and high density plastic make it light and provide durability for years to come. Very happy with it.
