  • Replied in Thanks!
    Thank you!
  • Created discussion thread A quick question about Sigma MC-11
    How much does it weight? I can't find this simple spec online, even on Sigma's websites. When considering my lens options, I would like to know how much MC-11 adds to the lens' weight. If you have ...
  • Replied in UI vs IQ vs ...
    I have 2 Sony cameras (A7R2 and RX100M3), and 2Micro 4/3 (Panasonic and Olympus). I used a Canon DSLR before switching to M4/3. I also had various P&S: Minolta, Canon, Fujifilm... I tried Samsung ...
  • Created discussion thread Curved camera bag?
    I prefer a "normal" or messenger-style camera bags, rather than a backpack, sling bag, etc. All typical bags have a flat back side, which makes them not very comfortable  to carry: Regular bag I am ...
  • The beam that goes directly through the center of the lens does not refract (change direction while passing through the glass), so there is no CA and other aberrations associated with it. The beam ...
  • Created discussion thread BestBuy “Try Before You Buy” Option
    This sounds interesting: http://www.dealerscope.com/article/best-buy-perfects-omnichannel-retail-new-try-buy-option/#ne=de3bd3b8ad47257266ba06de2c3e138a&utm_source=dealerscope-today&utm_medium=news ...
  • I am very happy with Gitzo traveler (older model GT1541T) and Arca-Swiss P0 Monoball head. The tripod closes "almost" completely, because the wide part of the head fits where the leg locks diameter ...
  • It would drive me crazy, trying to find the right knob while my eye is at the viewfinder:
  • Replied in Tilt
    I am not trying to suggest that P0 is an acceptable full-function replacement for a proper gimbal. To use the panning also, don't lock the ball - then you can pan with the ball, and tilt with the ...
  • My older Traveler has slightly longer center column, so P0 fits where the leg locks are thin: Compare to the tripod you selected - the legs may not close completely. There is a traveler with even ...
  • Replied in Tilt
    I use the panning feature as tilt, while the ball is fully locked, like this: it is very smooth and effort can be adjusted.
  • Disabling GPU support, re-installing the drivers, and re-enabling the GPU support helped. Should have thought about that myself. Thanks!
  • When working on an image in ACR, the image breaks apart, with part of the image visible in Histogram window, and the histogram - in the Image window. Happens when moving any of the sliders. If I ...
  • Replied in RRS and others
    One differentiating feature of P0 is the reverse design - the ball is mounted to the tripod, and the head is moving above the ball.  The center of gravity is lower, thus the camera is more stable. ...
  • The head is very solid - I can't move it with my hands when it is locked. I might look for more robust legs for that lens - Traveler is lightweight and compact, but for 600mm you need something ...
  • Replied in It matters...
    It does matter for those who are considering buying / upgrading /switching, etc. They would like to be sure that the system they choose will be supported by the manufacturer for a while. In that ...
  • Alas, it is true. One of the main reasons companies fail is identifying the tipping point after the fact.
  • I use Gitzo traveler 1541T (older model) with Arca-Swiss P0 Monoball. It is a killer combination! The head fits neatly when the tripod is folded - the wide body of the head goes where the legs are ...
  • When a new product is introduced, that is competing with an incumbent product, it mast first reach a "tipping point". It happens when the new product is objectively and measurably better than the ...
  • I have a few plates and L-brackets. All of them are locked without any problems by Sirui K-10X head's screw clamp. It is the Sirui plate, which came included with the head, that can't be locked in ...
