Will the composite material of the head hold up as long as metal?
Asked by: Pino
Composite materials do not hold up as long as metal that being said this tripod is still extremely durable and should last a long time. Cartoni certainly has faith in their products' longevity as they offer a 3 year warranty that can be extended to 5 years once you register the tripod.

I need to film a fairly close up headshot of someone while they're standing. They're 5'10". Is this system tall enough or should I invest in the Stabilo?
Asked by: Pino
The Cartoni Focus 8 has a 63.5" maximum height. If they are sitting, this tripod will do just fine. Otherwise, I recommend raising the height by using apple boxes.

Can this be mounted on a flat-base like the Cartoni Focus HD? By removing the spriggot underneath the base of the head with pliers?
