            Makes setting up easy. Only have to get tripod close and the rest with this. Using with a custom bracket gimbal head and 600mm f4

                Comments about Acratech Large Leveling Base:

                Works as expected. Previously, I used a leveling base that replaced the base on the tripod with a handle underneath that prevented me from using the tripod at ground level. Also, lower profile than some other leveling bases.

                  I use this with Feisol PB-70 panning base and Manfrotto 496RC2. It perfectly handles my 1D and 24-70 or 70-200.

                      Comments about Acratech Large Leveling Base:

                      I use this with a RRS pano head screwed directly on top for ... shooting panos. I got the "Large" size because I wanted to make sure I had highest visibility of the bubble - and I'm glad I made that decision. With a Gitzo "0" series tripod with minimal leg extension, this is my backpacking setup.

                      Pluses: Bubble is very accurate; bubble is large and easy to see small changes; setup is much faster and more accurate than leveling with legs.

                      Minuses: Movement is not silky smooth like a good ballhead, or like a video-type leveling base. There is a slight shift when you lock it down - I've gotten used to this, but that is the reason it did not get 5 stars.
