Hello from Canada

Hi all,

I'm brand new to the forum; I'm mostly a large format shooter (4x5 and 8x10), but I was the proud owner of a complete Pentax 67 outfit until recently.

I have been a professional photographer for almost 20 years, and a few months ago, I also became the North American distributor for FLM tripods, ball heads and QR systems.

If you have any questions about any tripod- or ball head-related stuff, feel free to send me an email. My website is www DOT flmcanada DOT com

I will contribute positively on this forum as well, not just push the gear I sell, so I will probably be lurking in the Gear section more often than not.

Thanks, I'm happy to be here.

Ari

Welcome Ari,

Glad to know we now have a tripod expert in house. Are you familiar with fitting Arcatech & RRS heads to Gitzo tripod/monopod? I am having a hard time to keep these heads from turning on my Series 2 CF since Gitzo has only one bottom hex-head setscrew to tighten!

Hi Vick,
Thanks for the welcome; I'm mostly an expert in all things FLM.
At FLM, we use thread glue to fasten screws to our ball heads. This prevents any slippage when panning, accidental or otherwise.
As for the head coming loose, maybe a letter to Gitzo will solve the problem; if they have a decent customer service department, they'll send a replacement screw or its upgrade.
Good luck!

Aye, indeed!
If only they made an affordable digital back, it might cut down on travel weight.

Merci, Jean.
Having sold my 67 outfit, I may go back to MF; I like the Pentax 645, and its cousin, the Mamiya 645 (both AF).
Until then, I can only shoot 67 on my 4x5 roll film back.

Hi there,

I'm new to the forum as well. Love my K5; 'found' my dad's old Pentax ME. With 50mm 1.2 attached!
