BORG 55FL F3.6 – 2 with Heavy Camera

I made further weight balance test.


Quite easy with Fuji X-T1. Still a plenty of extra room on a plate.


With Cooled 6D. Camera weighs 1.5kg

I don’t remember I used 55FL with this 6D before. Might not. At least I’m sure it wasn’t comfortable even I did. But as shown the above, finally I found out the comfortable setup with a heavy 6D.

QSI WSG is 1.3kg according to their web site. Adding a guider, looks almost same weight as my 6D. So I’m sure this setup allows to equally use QSI camera too.

If someone who own heavy or large camera bodies are looking for the high quality wide-field imaging, this is it. 200mm focal length comes with a camera rotator, which allows to orient a camera body without the interference with a plate.

Further more,  if necessary, you can set more accessories on one of mounting rings as the counterweight too. So there are a lot of options for the weight adjustment. Indeed, BORG mounting rings are very clever design.
