    Default Will a SVP head mount to CG4 Tripod?



    Found a CG4 tripod on craigslist and thought it might be a good upgrade for my SVP with 1.5" legs the CG4 has 2" legs
    But 1) I don't know if my SVP head will mount to the CG4 tripod assy. I was hoping someone here would know.

    2) do you think $80.00 is a good price for the CG4 tripod?

    Thanks!

    Actually Auburt I think they are basically the same tripod.
    I have a CG-4 and the legs are 1.75" the specs for the SVP also say 1.75" for the legs. The CG5 (just bought one) has the 2" legs.

    Just rechecked the add it says cg-4 maybe he made a mistake I'll give him a call tomorrow.. If they are 1.75" legs think it would help stiffen my mount? I have an older SVP with 1.5" legs.

    Thanks for the help.
