  • Thank you all for your feedback.  I had determined that I was going to go with the Platypod with the Sirui B-00 head as I think that will end up getting the most use.  Since I was able to get the ...
  • My trip is in less than 2 weeks and I think I have finally narrowed it down.  I'm going to get a Platypod and pair it with a Sirui B-00 ball head. BUT...I can get a tripod that includes the B-00 ...
  • Replied in Sirui AM 225?
    Has anyone had experience with this yet?  Amazon seems to be having a temporary sale on it here ...
  • When you're traveling, whether seeing family, traveling abroad, visiting nature's beauties...do you bring any kind of a tripod? Historically, I've always used whatever was around me when taking a ...
  • My original post mentioned the GorillaPod as a wild card possibility.  In continuing to research, however, there were some other names that popped up repeatedly. Platypod Ultra : $60 and 3.2 ozs ...
  • Thank you for the additional feedback and guidance. With regards to how I plan to use the tripod, it will primarily be when traveling.  Most of the time I will be flying to a destination, and ...
  • Thank you very much, Richard B99!  That was extremely helpful!
  • Richard B99, can you share a picture of your DIY version of the Platypod?  I'm trying to figure out how I might be able to replicate it.
  • Thank you for your recommendation.  The Rollei website appears to be down, but the Amazon information seems promising.  Unfortunately, it's a little bit heavier than I was hoping for.
  • If there are particular threads you would recommend, I would be happy to review them.  In my own searches the threads I found had bigger budgets or heavier equipment or different sizing ...
  • Ok, I have looked at headless options to open up the possibilities more (haven't looked into heads yet...will have to figure out weight & cost in addition to the possibilities below) (1) Field Optics ...
  • I've never used a tripod before, as I've always used my arms and/or a stationary object to help stabilize the camera when shooting.  But, with an upcoming trip to some national parks, I think this ...
  • Thank you everyone for your feedback. I acknowledge that the "auto" approach to RAW isn't much different from JPGs.  I have been happy with JPGs for a long time and generally have a wide selection ...
  • I would like to become more serious about my photography (more serious in terms of learning skills for photography as a hobby) and being organized.  Historically I only do JPGs and don't do more ...
  • This is a question, and not a suggestion, but would iMatch or Photo Supreme work in this instance?  I know that they can compare up to 8 shots at a time to aid in selection of one's favorites, but ...
  • Thank you all for your advice.  I think I will try doing some manual focusing with my 17mm to see how I like it.  If I don't care for it (or not enough to do it continuously on a trip) then that ...
  • Thank you so much for the feedback and options.  Adobe Photoshop Elements is now out.  I've been giving ACDSee and PhotoDirector some serious looks.  One feature I was hoping to find was being ...
  • I hope it's okay to piggyback on this thread, as I have a very similar question.  If it's not, let me know and I will start my own thread. I too am looking for a photo editor & organizer, though my ...
  • I appreciate all of the additional feedback. The Laowa 9mm also seems intriguing.  I might look for some comparisons between it and the SLR Magic.  Based on the price difference, I imagine which ...
  • Replied in Go for it
    Gary, those are some gorgeous photos.  Inspiring and making me rethink my decision to avoid the 75-300mm because of size!
