If I recall correctly Vitec is the company's name.
And yes, Sachtler, Vinten and O'connor are owned by them.
The Oconnor legs I had recent experience with (Carbon fiber 25L) seemed pretty clumsy to work with, the legs dont drop on there own when you unlock them...it requires manually extending them which means more time etc. They also made a lot of squeaking noises so perhaps the particular sticks just needed service but the DP was not overall satisfied with them at all.
I am also looking for some quick drop, lock and go sticks myself so I appreciate feedback on this thread...I will be using a 1030HDS head.
Has anyone used the Cartoni Gamma/Delta here?
We actually have a Gamma at RED... its once badass setup, specially with the carbon legs.
It's portable compared to an O'Connor 2060. We had a client in our shop today setting up his new RED with his new 2060 and he is looking at it as a transportable setup. If he can do it (and he can, it's not so bad at all) then the T28 is smaller & lighter so I'd cal that "pretty portable."
But I would suggest investing in a tripod tube with wheels!
I've found a used Cartoni fl7, it's a great tripod for a light setup. Cartoni tripods are very well designed and they are very practical to use.
I use Libec sticks here in Kabul with the 95 head and works like a charm, price point was at $2500 in Dubai, light, fast setup and handles the R1 with rails, Mattbox, 7"LCD, etc with no problem, well balanced
The name is not well known, but the product is top rate
