    It all depends on the load you'll put on it. The Video-15SB is twice the price of a DV-8SB. At that price point, I might consider the O'Connor 1030HD instead.

    However, for less than $3 grand, you can get a DV-8SB (with 2-stage CF tripod) offering counterbalance from 2 - 26.5 lbs. I believe it's the best tripod head available in a 75mm ball.
    Practice safe filmmaking; use a concept.

    We had the AG-HPX500 setup at the P2 HD Roadshow on a Manfrotto 516/3193/3138

    It worked great! Balance was just right. Let us know if you need a quote. We can quote the camera too if your company likes.

    I just got shooting for 2 weeks with my HPX and a Miller Arrow 25. I love the Miller. Very... buttery... silky pans... slow stops and with the Solo legs its not all that heavy.

    Yeah, the 1505 legs. The package I got is the 1793, I got it locally for about $3800, no regrets. It's already paid off in the last 2 weeks. I was torn between the Sprinter II and the Solo legs but the Solo has a height range that better suited my needs... 8" - 73"

    I rented some Sachtlers for my HVX, DV6, DV8, DV20 and was never terribley impressed... of course, they were kinda beat up rentals... I would highly recommend checking out a Miller, if possible.

    I was thinking about to combine the solo 1505 with the Sachtler video15 SB head. I think the solo is more portable than for instance the Sachtler speed lock CF or the ENG 2 CF. Am I right ????????? Yeh the height range of the solo is also higher.

    I am not sure if you are right about the portability of the Solo vs the others but I would say the Solo is very portable and fairly quick to set up.

    At the IBC I extensively checked out the solo 1505 legs and when panning I noticed that the legs showed a clearly visible torsion. There was no working cam on it so I could not actually see what the influence was on the footage. When I looked at for instance the Sachtler speed lock CF (just an exemple) I did not see that torsion when panning. So now I am doubting if portability is more important to me than than less torsion.
