Too heavy?

Anybody know if sachtler fsb 6t with carbon fiber tripod will be good enough for fs700 and canon 70-200mm lens with ikan 7d monitor on top, plus rode ntg-1 mic mounted - or is all this too heavy?

Trying to buy these things but first asking a few questions

Re: Too heavy?

It depends on what you mean by "too heavy", but surely each part of the payload has a published weight and the tripod certainly would have a specified limit.
Its all simple arithmetic from there.

Re: Too heavy?

Hi Kent,
I do a lot of shooting for a company that has two FS700 rigs. Theirs are slightly heavier (instead of the monitor, imagine a pix240 and an evf on each.) They have two sachtler tripods - a 6 and an 8.
We normally configure the camera with the 70-200 2.8 (they happen to use Alpha lenses, but weight is about the same) on the fsb8, and the camera with the 24-70 2.8 goes on the fsb6.
These configurations work fine for us -- but if you're doing a lot of shooting on the long end of the 70-200 (or want to use even longer lenses) an even heavier tripod might be an asset. If you're doing mainly interviews it should be fine.
