One day while looking at the orchard ladder in my backyard, I realized it just needed a tripod head. Some scrap, a hole drilled for a 3/8" stud and there it was, the tallest tripod in town.... ;-) Now to try it out, 10.5mm on D200 and a wireless remote release. The ladder is made by Hasegawa and is very stable. I got the platform version and it would work for elevated handheld shooting. If someone needed an elevated view over crowds or for a unique view point this might work. The company has a site with all the dimensions and info..... www.hasegawaladders.com A selfie of sorts,... that's me peaking over the corn. Am up to 30 raised beds, most on drip irrigation, 6 grape vines, and 8 fruit trees. It's amazing what intensive agricultue like this can produce, excess produce doesn't go to waste, it gets shared.
