gddxb wrote:No-one. Anywhere. Has suggested to do this.
gddxb wrote:Why - for the third time - are you trying to imply that speed modes (regardless of which head is being talked about) are of no use because of the fact that at their fastest setting they're not suitable for use with long lenses? It's as ridiculous an argument as saying that there's no point in having a car that can go faster than 3 miles an hour because that's the fastest speed you can use when parallel parking it.
It is nothing short of willful and deliberate obfuscation. Pure and simple.

is certainly sage advice.
Onto practical matters -Because iÂ´m rather quality- than speed-oriented i abandoned the speed mode on my head-version of JosefÂ´s. The sensors which prevent exposures at even slightest shaking
This is a very useful feature to have.
Out of interest, what's the quickest time between shots that Josef's head can manage with a 5kg (1d4+400/2.8 II) load?

This is reducing your horizontal resolution of your camera from 4896 pixel/1.75 to an equivalent of 2797 pixel. You must decide if that is o.k. for your work.
gddxb wrote:You're bordering in trolling now Klaus.Did you ever shoot from a fast moving platform using a 400mm lens?
gddxb wrote:Tell you what. You go shoot your panoramas in whatever mode you want.
With a 400mm lens.
On a 1D MkIV.
And take twice as long as is necessary to do it.
Be my guest.

gddxb wrote:Speed, or perhaps we should refer to them as "continuous motion" modes, can work very well for short focal length lenses,
gddxb wrote:or long focal length lenses, because you ARE generally better off shooting off a slow moving platform than having to wait for a stop-motion platform to settle.
gddxb wrote:It's the middle range of focal lengths where they don't make sense.
Please keep providing us with your insight and knowledge of both Josefs and other heads, I personally find it very valuable information, as with any information, one "the individual" is responsable to verify the information, one reads.
We all try to provide the best and most reliable information we have available to us at the time of writing, when advising others, but its ultimately the readers own responsiblity to varify this.
So again, Klaus, please keep it coming.
