  • Replied in Why a kit?
    I'd like to add some GNDs to play around with.  Right now I do have some step-up rings that I'm using for my 72mm filters, but definitely noticing vignettes in my photos when shot around 17mm
  • Did a bit more research.  Some quick thoughts: (1) Nisi vs Lee/Cokin - Comes with CPL, and the Nisi kits for the most part equal the price of just one or two Lee components
  • I've never used a GND and I'd really like to experiment.  The H&Y series looked interesting, as did Nisi, in that the CPL gets mounted but can easily be rotated on the side. My major concerns with ...
  • I got a great gift card for B&H as a gift, and was looking at possibly getting a filter kit. All of my filters are currently screw on 72mm, but since I got a new camera (A7RIII) and my lenses are ...
  • Ooo that looks nice.  Any idea what can work to boost that a bit higher?  I currently have a c-clamp that has a normal screw that I can use, but the monopod I had was just terriblly unstable with ...
  • Created discussion thread Tips on videoconference lighting
    I'm looking to get some better lighting when using my Sony A7RIII as my webcam when in virtual meetings. I bought an Aputure m9, but I find the battery is really poor, though light actually isn't ...
  • Yeah, the plan is to really just use this on my desk.  I want to position the camera right above my monitor - too far back or the side I can't look at my monitor and then it looks like I am ...
  • What attachment did you get?
  • Definitely something I considered.  Wasn't sure where to go to find a swivel arm with that type of screw attachment for a ballhead, would need something removable so I can replace with the ball ...
  • Created discussion thread Camera mount to desk
    Does anyone know of a reliable mount for a mirrorless camera for a table?  Ideally, I'd love to clamp a monopod onto my desktop (or an affordable articulating arm) that has a ball head or other ...
  • Thanks for the advice!  Looks like I should then think of having maybe one light to each side of the monitor, and the camera propped above the monitor? Seems maybe I should return that M9 then, ...
  • Ended up buying an Aputure M9 ( https://www.amazon.com/Aputure-AL-M9-Amaran-Light-Camera/dp/B01ITRLJIW ).  My only concern is staring into a camera with a bright LED on top. Looking at other ...
  • Any good recommendations on tripods or stands? I have a nice sirui tripod but it's not really meant for a desk. I did find https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0784SSRZS/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_HNFqFbSYNE43B ...
  • Was actually looking at something like this: https://lumecube.com/collections/streaming/products/video-conference-lighting-kit-for-remote-workers The ring light was an idea just because I had a bit ...
  • Only concern with that approach is that I would end up needing a LOT of space - first for the camera tripod and then the ring tripod in front - any thoughts on a way to have space saving stands?  ...
  • Created discussion thread Ring light for my camera
    I'm looking to use my camera (Sony A7RIII) as a webcam, and am looking for an OK ring light to use.  My lighting in my apartment isn't the best, and a ring light will definitely help. I tried ...
  • Thank you for the thoughtful and helpful responses, really appreciated!  What do you use in your Osprey to store lenses?  Do you find it difficult to easily switch lenses?  I just recently ...
  • Any preference on camera backpacks?  My issue mostly was that Boundary and the old Lowepro I have just had me sweating buckets and in a lot of pain.
  • How is it on the back - does it lead to a ton of sweating?  Weight distributed well?
  • Thanks for all the tips!  From a hiking perspective, I never do multi-day hikes.  The longest hikes I typically do are around 6-8 hours honestly.  Important that the backpack be able to either go ...
