Craig Gillette's recent activity

  • As already pointed out, there seems to be a discrepancy on the vendor's page.  this  head can come with the head fitted with either the 200pl or the Toplock type release clamps/plates.  There is a ...
  • It's not an easy question to answer.  Before she went to Europe for a study abroad program, we got my daughter an RX100.  Very nice, flexible, a lot of convenient programmable options for many ...
  • Not sure why you might differentiate between the D5500 and D7200 for travel except the D5500 is smaller and lighter.  (There are some other details but not sure they impact the travel decision ...
  • Going small and light is a systems approach.  One thing to consider is that as you add lenses, and especially faster lenses, say f2.8 zooms as opposed to similar range f4s, or adding more lenses ...
  • Same as before. Copyright goes to the person who fixes the work in tangible form.  Now there may be some concerns about who owns the physical item (file, negative, etc.) but copyright and item are ...
  • Not always a good assumption. Also, while I believe most companies will warranty/service cameras bought while traveling, there may be some differences in different markets as to to language or ...
  • Replied in CDG?
    We traveled to and from Florence, transferring at CDG last year.  We went through a security check between flights with no problems.  But it is a bit unusual that once "inside" you would go ...
  • Straight forward but is it right? Owning a work that is copyrighted is not the same as owning the copyright.  You can own a copy of a book and not own the copyright so it may well be that the real ...
  • Same question, same results.  Lots of recommendations will come along and many will conflict. Current dslrs, dslts and mirror-less cameras use essentially the same sensors.  So body type isn't a ...
  • Go to the Library of Congress website and read the copyright material.  Expecting to get the right answer (and only the right answer) from forums is wishful thinking.  You will likely get the ...
  • It's probably worth reviewing this because you are trying to avoid getting into this sort of permit issue: http://www.largeformatphotography.info/photo-permits/ There are 10 some million people in ...
  • I think I'd go with the 18-140 but not sure what regular grip prices are or the after market grips are either.  The lens performance is said to be better and a grip is a bit harder to evaluate. Som ...
  • Yeah, I guess I fall into the group not sure about your question/objectives.  So lens choice is a possible answer, camera choice is a different answer but they kind of need to be worked together.  ...
  • There was a message on my profile page and it clicked through to this: The PBase servers are up and running with no problems. There was a networking / DNS issue that is preventing access to servers ...
  • Replied in Timing
    The first half of September.  The Labor Day holiday in the US is the first Monday in September.  Combined with the weekend before, it is the usual end of the main summer travel season and until ...
  • I don't spend a lot of time in airports.  Unless you are a ticketed passenger, etc., you are usually limited in where you can hang out and the places I've been recently were uninteresting for the ...
  • No problem with considering the M (N?) 3004x Siruis  but when you go aluminum of that tube size and the larger ball head, it's likely to be both solid and maybe pushing the inconveniently heavy ...
  • Manfrotto is pretty realistic in their ratings in comparison to some of the others.  The Befree is a light travel tripod so even if the "weight" is within the total, a light tripod like that is ...
  • That's like saying, skip Yosemite, there will be tourists there.  You are going to be time short no matter where you go just because of the distances involved.  L.A. takes some effort to visit.  ...
  • Your itinerary may be driven by your reservations although it might be somewhat less crowded after the first weekend of September.  Yosemite is likely fully booked and then some.  I'm going to ...
