        hi guys,

        i recently injured my back at work, and it isn't looking too good.

        i have uptill now been using Canon 1-series and L-lenses for my photography, but its now too heavy if i want to persuit photography and in particular pano's

         

        What are you guys using, whats working really well, i have been wanting to get a robotic head, i have been shooting HDR panos so far. And is there something like the promote that works with the mirrorless system.

        Sorry if this has been covered before

        thanks

        Henrik
