  • ...and my E-PL1 - my goodness, that seems like a long list -- do I have a G.A.S. Problem? -- -Dennis W. Austin, Texas http://www.pbase.com/3dwag/image/97156660.jpg
  • My local dealer go-to-guy said he expects the 300mm f/4 this summer, at US$1,800. He was ready to sign me up on the pre-order list, but I plan to wait until there is a package deal/ discount with ...
  • Replied in RRS or Gitzo?
    Thank you, Steve. That is quite a strong endorsement for the RRS tripods! I have a couple of the smaller RRS heads and L-bracket, and am certainly impressed with RRS quality. My interest in the ...
  • Replied in RRS or Gitzo?
    Whoah! How did that happen? I have a GT2540 which has never seemed quite stable enough with my heaviest lens, how does the RRS 24L compare? Did you get the optional column for a bit more height ...
  • Check out Peak Design, for light- and heavier-duty neck strap/slings, wrist straps, and also capture clips which allow you to clip/ unclip your DSLR to your belt, or to a separate camera belt, ...
  • I recommend that you consider Sirui, if available, either the T-2204X, or the even more compact T-1205X. As a Gitzo owner (GT3531 Systematic and GT2540), I've been on a similar quest, wanting to ...
  • Thanks, Bob, a very helpful reply. I'm thinking about the next time we visit familly in Japan - I don't check baggage, but not just any tripod is better than no tripod, and the Sirui 1205 seems to ...
  • Bob, In actual use, how does your smaller Sirui 1205 compare to your Gitzo 1542T, i.e. stability, vibration damping? Even with the Sirui's 5th leg extended? How about the leg locks - I have never ...
  • 懐かしい。 どうもありがとうございました。 Thank you for your beautiful images of cherry blossoms. We used to live in Tokyo, but it has been too many years since I've been in Japan during this time of year, and your ...
  • Have you checked out the Peak Design "Slide" or "Leash" solutions? I especially like the compact and secure quick-connect system, and, for that matter, all of their other accessories - highly ...
  • iPad Air works really well for me - I prefer to view using the iBook app, in single page mode, portrait orientation. Cheers, -Dennis.
  • Suggest that you also either use a remote cable release, or at a 2 or 5 sec shutter delay, since you are going to all this trouble. Cheers, -Dennis
  • Or, to be more specific, it's a red-breasted nuthatch.
  • Replied in NOT ME...
    Main bag is ThinkTank MirrorlessMover 30i (weighs 1 lb), sometimes the 20i. (0.7 lb) Rarely, TT UrbanDisguise 35, or one of my larger bags left from E-3/ E-5 and pre-4/3rds DSLR days. I still do ...
  • Great video find, thanks for posting! The car in the OP's photo is definitely a 1954 Ford Crestline, but the one in your video link is an even rarer variation - a 1954 Ford Crestline Skyliner, ...
