Received today the tripod collar

As noted I received the collar this morning. It is a very well designed, machined and finished device and to my mind well worth the $105 cost [75 euro]. Excellent directions on mounting which are really not needed. The only thing you could possibly lose would be the screws which hold the base to the collar, so they provided an extra two.

To give you a time frame of delivery: 2/17 E-Mail to them requesting info 2/17 Rcvd info & notice of backorder of a few days 2/28 Collar shipped and received e-mail invoice 3/3 Arrived NY customs 3/7 Received registered mail USPS

To the question of why is it needed I would like to add to the already answered "balance" the ability to quickly turn the camera to portrait mode.

Thanks to Texinwien for pointing me to this.
