Telescoping Post Longer or Staying Compact

Recommended Posts


I'm wondering if there are any advantages to extending the post to make the rig longer or if it is better to keep it as compact as possible? I assume there has to be some physics behind the explanation and maybe it all comes down to personal preference/specific shot scenario. I would love any information on the topic.

I think post length should be altered to get the specific shot - either to change the lens height range and/or the rig's inertia. Choosing to configure your sled only one way is like playing 10 keys on the piano instead of all 88.
