David C  I am interested in buying this CC 5033. Do you have a package deal which would include all needed accessory, such as the bag?
Shopper  Which tripod & fluid head do you recommend?
JAMES H  I would recommend a heavy duty tripod. Use a tripod with solid legs and a head that can handle at least 25 lbs. It will make the moves smoother and will be easier to handle.
