  • I'm sorry you feel that way but I'm not telling you an untruth. I tried to let it slide with your first post to this thread but it needed correcting with your second. On sensor CDF is more ...
  • Sorry guy, I have no solution. I don't understand why that lens will function on some Nikon 1 cameras and not others. It's a mystery to me. I know of two other people with V2s and with the current ...
  • Replied in Which Tripod?
    Obviously you don't shoot birds or even fast moving mammals. Live view can work when not in bright sunlight and relatively still subjects. Mirror lock-up is useless. It's simply takes too long and ...
  • Replied in Which Tripod?
    You do like to argue. Not if you compare Thom Hogan's needs to the OP's and considering Thom recommends that everyone spend $1k on a tripod. There is, because you do have to deal with mirror slap ...
  • It's more then that. It sounds great that as a Nikon user with one of the high end cameras, we can still use the old Nikon lenses. Either as is or with a slight mod. The demand is much greater ...
  • Replied in Which Tripod?
    It does not matter. My original comment was about Thom Hogan and his recommendations about spending $1K on a tripod. Thom's recommendations are valid for the way he uses tripods. He uses DSLRs and ...
  • Replied in Which Tripod?
    If you can use live view on demand, fine. That has not been my experience. Many times I've had to resort to the OVF because I can't see the rear LCD screen. I dumped my old D5100 because many ...
  • Replied in Which Tripod?
    Ok, if you say so. That works if you have a hood for the rear LCD screen or something to block out the light on bright days. More stuff to carry. As for the weight, that was not my point. The ...
  • It works on my V2 as well, with the current firmware on the camera and FT-1. That is to say, I don't get any error messages. That being said, auto focus is next to useless and I don't use the lens ...
  • Replied in Which Tripod?
    I'd say that from Thom's perspective, what he said is correct. He shoots a lot with a DSLR and FF long lenses. The OP is using a mirrorless that is lighter, has no mirror slap and probably wants to ...
  • What we see of her stance looks good. We can't see her legs and we really don't know if any of her pictures were good. Now try pointing that same lens higher up or at the sky and see how it works ...
  • Replied in Gimbal Head
    You can probably get by with one of the cheap gimbal heads with that lens. I have the same lens and it's not terribly heavy. A friend of mine was going to try the Tamron on one of the cheap ebay ...
  • Replied in Gimbal Head
    What camera and lens are you trying to carry? The cheap ebay ones will work ok for a light setup but aren't great when you get into heavy gear with long lenses. You want the gimbal to run smooth ...
  • LOL! I did something the same and again without a camera and lens. It was just something I had to know. I bought an Induro CT505 tripod. The biggest tripod Induro sells. Maybe not as good as a ...
  • I'm going to make another comment to this thread before it goes away. They currently have standards for measuring camera battery life, ISO, VR (OS, IS, etc.), whatever you want to call it. There ...
  • Replied in Oben Tripods
    Maybe the OP should state what camera and his longest lens he will be using this tripod for? Without that kind of information, we are all making guesses.
  • Well that is not the tripod that your original post suggested you were looking for. Everyone always talks about lightweight tripods, i am interested in a heavy one that is sturdy and will not move ...
  • I don't think it needs to test every circumstance. I know that if I add weight to the tripod hook the damping factor gets better. I know that if I extend the center column the damping factor gets ...
  • Mark, That is quite excellent! Yes, your very close to what I'm looking for. The graphs are nice but it would be easier for the mfgs if they could be summarized into a number or two. Something like ...
  • No head attached and obviously no weight on the head. We want to test the legs alone. The max. weight spec for a tripod is before a head or camera gear is installed. It's not extended. Stability is ...
