I keep reading the Nikonians various posts regarding heads and leg sets and have a some what hard time putting it all into perspective for my shooting style. I use Nikon D2X AND a Mamiya 634afd2 w/ a PhaseOne back. I do not backpack these anywhere, but neither do I like taking a studio stand on location. Mostly commercial, industrial, advertising shoots. I was thinking of a Arca Swiss Monoball head, but also considered a Manfrotto MN490. I do not see much mention of the Manfrotto line, any particular reason? Any thoughts/ suggestions are appreciated. eventually I would replace my aging legs (Bogen 3051 geared,heavy unless I am shooting in the same area all day... and 3021, light but not as sturdy as the other monster)
Thanks in advance/
