    Time for a new phone.

  • For over twenty years I found myself buying new bags every couple of years or so. They didn’t wear out, they just weren’t quite fit for purpose for one reason or another. My bag specific GAS was ...
  • https://www.amazon.com/Military-Tactical-Travel-Outdoor-Activities/dp/B01CQOQS8A?th=1 Not quite 10” (9.4”), and you’d probably have to provide your own padding.
  • It sounds like you’ve seen the Peak Design Capture Clip and want something similar that will work with a basic Arca Swiss style plate like the one on your Meike MK-XT1G. The problem is that the ...
  • Replied in Pixel Oppilas
    That would be because it’s not an Olympus part. The dealer probably threw it in as a freebie. The XTWRUNI (catchy name🙃) is a third party ‘universal remote’. On the basis of these negative reviews....
  • DPReview is owned by Amazon.
  • It is, but a lot of (most?) MOLLE stuff uses alternate spacing for attachment straps. My pouch has an 1 3/4” space between the two 1” fixing straps. That fits my Billingham f2.8 perfectly I would ...
  • I have a ‘tactical’ style Pouch which fits perfectly. Any number of similar MOLLE-compatible stuff would also work. However, a lot of the decent quality pouches aren’t much cheaper than ...
  • If the load is well balanced over the centre of the ballhead, it will be fine. RRS ballheads are made from decent quality components, and you’re only really using the panning base of the ballhead. ...
  • Replied in probably not
    Really? What about liquids? Surely these would explode in an unpressurized cargo hold. Maybe in some smaller aircraft you might have an unpressurized cargo hold, but I doubt the rule is ‘no ...
  • ...the luggage handlers playing basketball with your luggage might not be ideal. I’d remove the head and take it as a carry on just to be on the safe side.

    What’s the ‘freezing hold’? If you mean the regular cargo hold of an aircraft, apparently temperatures rarely drop below 7 degrees C. Your fluid head is good for -20 degrees according to manfrotto.
  • Sounds like you’re asking for a lot from a £170 tripod. A second-hand aluminium tripod (Manfrotto 055 or similar) with a Sirui K20x ( K40x would be better) ballhead might get you what you want for ...
  • Like this: https://www.amazon.co.uk/SMALLRIG®-Camera-Mount-Additional-Screw-Shoe-761/dp/B0087MV3LI/ref=pd_sim_421_4?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=JVJ0XNKR1EBTW40VW8XK Awkward and cumbersome, but I ...
  • Didn’t realise the OP was in the UK. M6 (more common here) thread will also fit a 1/4”-20 without damaging it. That said, for other purposes, an m6 bolt will damage a 1/4”-20 socket.

  • Unfortunately there is no standardised unit of ‘load limit’. It’s a subjective concept. What’s ‘good enough’ for one manufacturer isn’t necessarily the same as for another. ‘Load limit’ is useful ...
  • They make this: https://www.manfrotto.us/low-angle-adapter-for-new-190-series for the newer 190 series tripods. You’d probably have to get in touch with manfrotto to find out if it would work with ...
  • Replied in Parts diagram
    If you can work out the exact 055 model that you have, this site has parts diagrams which might help. https://www.manfrottospares.com/index.php?route=product/search&search=055&activeSearch=1b2c16ecaf
  • I think you’re a lot closer to a realistic budget than many others who post here seeking tripod advice with similar equipment. I’ve got a suggestion for you that might fit the bill. At the very ...
