Sunwayfoto DDH-03i Panning Clamp Reduced Torque Capacity

Sunwayfoto DDH-03i Panning Clamp overview
A few days ago I received an email from a reader asking for my opinion (thanks Ray) on an issue he was experiencing with a recently acquired DDH-03i panning clamp.

The clamp did not seem to be able to withstand the load of a Nikon D600 + 70-200mm f:2.8 (approx 2.5 kg) set out by 18cm from the center of the clamp.

Therefore, I had to order a DDH-03i clamp and verify the panning lock strength before running into any conclusions.

Nest NT-6294CT Carbon Fiber Traveler Tripod w/ case strap and tools
As I was informed by Desmond Photographic Dist. they have introduced a special promotion regarding the three Nest Carbon Fiber Tripods they carry in the US market.

Taking into account the superb quality and patented twist locks of the Nest Professional Series, which were presented in detail in the Nest NT-6294CT Carbon Fiber Traveler Tripod Review, combined with so low promotional prices matching the prices of common aluminium tripods, then anyone seeking a very sturdy but also lightweight and transportable solution should take this promotion into serious consideration.
