I don’t know about that tripod, but I have the bogen 503 head, and I wouldn’t trade it for anything (unless by anything you mean a FX-1 or PD-170, in which case-SOLD!).

You’re right, the controller is a wonderful thing. I personally was trained on studio cameras with all the controls on the two handles (zoom and VTR switch on one, focus and exposure on the other). It’s the only way for me. For my own equipment, since I couldn’t afford the $30,000 Camera setup I was trained on, I bought the bogen controller (Model 520, IIRC). It has the zoom, focus, record, and power all on the handy controller. Very nice.

Can you help a little more. I can’t find the Bogen controller you have. Does it mount to the handle, or is it a handle with controls?

Thanks,
RB
