I can relate to that. I operated two cameras in near to the same workspace with the tripods knitted together on top of a cafe table. Both were SI2Ks doing a music event, chosen for the long continuous available recording time but really struggling in low light. I had to operate with both cams overhead. Next day, I felt like laying down in front of the sort of truck which my weary carcass felt it had been run over by that previous night. I am not going to do that to myself again. A kid eager can have the task next time with my blessing. I eschewed faith-based security for the tripod feet and taped them to the table surface with black gaffer tape. Trying to get that stuff off in the near dark after the show wrapped was a challenging exercise which just about whipped me. Am too old and wrinkly these days.
