I've always had good luck using the Slik U212 for a variety of uses; it has leg braces which add stability, and in addition to holding fairly heavy cameras I've used it for holding a homemade magnetic loop. There's also a 1/4-20 stud on the bottom of the center column which can be used to mount a weight bag for additional stability.Can anyone recommend a Tripod to hold the chameleon Cha-F loop. It's the large one with the metal plate on the bottom.
On the U212, yes. Been awhile since I took the head off, but the mounting stud is either 3/8-16 or 1/4-20. Pretty sure the U212 includes a 3/8-16 to 1/4-20 adapter but if not, you can get the adapter for a couple of bucks.Can the 3 way head be removed creating a level platform with a screw that fits a tripod socket?
