Dual Purpose Tripod

Hello All,

I'm looking for a tripod system that I can use for my Canon A1 and also for my Canon DSLR.

This is not for a pro but rather prosumer. I do make some $$$ from my hobby but this rig would not have to produce professional results....nice if it did but I'm a realist when asking for such a dual system.

Support weight for either camera/lens combo would be 10lbs max. I would bring this unit to shoots where I couldn't hand hold the camera the entire time....the A-1 or my Canon DSLR.

This tripod/head system would require very little panning/tilt movement for my A1. And, practically no movement when I use my Canon still cameras.

The stick system would have to be able to handle a head for video for my A-1 and a different head system for my Canon DSLR.

This is a bit of a reach I'm sure as most are used to dedicated support systems for video and DSLR but I sort of need a beast that can be used for combo dual purposes.

For any that care to respond to this unusual post...thank you in advance.

I read posts regularly on this site and get a lot of good info here.

Tx.

I'm in the same boat you are in, but i finally ended up buying a set im very happy with =) I too have an A1 and a Dslr canon, the only thing this head lacks is the ability to go vertical so you can shoot in portrait =(
this is the set i went with
