Thanks Robin. I never thought tripods were that expensive, but from what Hogan says they are essential. I have a Joby Gorillapod SLR-Zoom Flexible Mini Tripod w/ BH1-01EN Ballhead, of course it's not a replacement for a leg tripod, but do you think I can use it with the D800?

Never used one.

Is the flash memory you quote suitable for video? Or a bit slow?

My understanding is that Class 6 is good enough for video. So, Class 10 SDHC cards should be more than adequate. I plan to, but haven't done any real video shooting with the D800E yet.

It seems that Gitzo+Arca Swiss P0 has excellent reviews.

Gitzo was the first to come out with a carbon fiber tripod. Arca-Swiss also makes precision cameras, and they developed the dovetail system that Kirk, RRS, and others adopted.

Any feedback on this accesory ? Seems cool.

Never seen it.
