Hmmm, my own concern was about wobbling, for the small legs, and long
keep in mind that is a long, sturdy monopod, and that it can be paired with
a 2nd monopod reversed on it (the way I did a lot of 3m high shots)
I also used a small, welldone chinese tripod with a long monopod inserted
as central column (it was the right diameter), just before we made the
Venice meeting. But I never mounted it with the original column and the
rotator between the 2, coz it was decreasing stability.
Later I also completely reversed the scheme, using larger tripods, and
attatching the camera to the small edge of the monopod..
This increases stability and highness reachable. Though Agnos rotators and
Manfrotto 300n are sturdy enough, I always prefer to rotate the tripod
column and to have a straight connection between the tripod column and the
monopod. I think my way is less confortable, but more simple and secure.
Did you upgraded that setup after the gondola shot? what directions took?
I used Feisol once. My impression was very good. I have many Manfrottos,
one Gitzo, a Giottos, and 2 Berlebach, that are the ones that I'm mostly
