Canon body (the anti-twist one
and my Agnos Mrotator, so that I can quickly switch between shooting
panos and shooting stills from the tripod - it's faster than switching
lenses. My 486rc2 does not have a bubble level, but I have added one
(just a plate that goes on the 3/8 thread between the ball and the
socket). I mostly do not level when shooting panoramas because I prefer
to use vertical control points for proper leveling when rendering. I
will level when verticals are not available to set control points. I
have found no disdavantage at operating my modified, lighter Agnos
MrotatorCP on top of my 486rc2.
