  • I don't think your lateral arm would fit on top of the ring nut. The lateral arm looks like it has to mount on a flat plate for support.
  • It seems similar in function to this item on B&H Photo called a ring nut. https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/775801-REG/manfrotto_r131_98_ring_nut.html/pageID/accessory
  • I don't believe the Mindshift Backlight 26L is deep enough to hold a Canon 1DX Mark II. The 36L is deep enough, but not the 26L.
  • Think Tank Photo Retrospective Lens Changer 2
  • I own the Canon G1X and love its image quality. I just ordered a refurbished G1X Mark2 from Canon's website for only $399 US dollars. This price includes a one year Canon warranty, extra battery, ...
  • I don't know the answer to your question,but Epson's reference to P600 refurbished units as "closeout" makes me think you may be on to something. https://epson.com/Clearance-Center/Inkjet-Printers/ ...
  • If I am not happy with a lens' performance, I send it to Canon for repair; however, given you have a return window, I would return it to the seller. In the end, you must be happy with the lens, ...
  • This is very good advice. I've had lenses that I thought were soft, until I mounted them to a very sturdy tripod and they became very sharp.
  • Thank you for the great tip. I ordered the 600ex2. Happy holidays!
  • Today I received my replacement Gitzo GT4543LS and it's spirit is level when placed on level flooring. It's consistent with my carpenter's level, so I'm glad I decided to seek a replacement ...
  • My thoughts on the P5000 are as follows: (1) Lower cost per ml for ink (2) Two extra colors can result in wider color gamut (3) De ...
  • Thanks for the tip on the tripod carrying strap. I hadn't thought about a carrying strap, but think it will be a big help, so I ordered the Op/Tech strap from B&H. Thanks, again.
  • Replied in Close Out Thread
    I wanted to thank everyone for your feedback, insight, ideas, and support. I wanted to close out this thread by letting everyone know that I shipped the tripod back to the retailer with a request ...
  • I'm not surprised that by extending or retracting all 3 legs equally resulted in no change to the spirit level, but I very surprised that when you shortened one leg by 2 inches the spirit still ...
  • Bing Chow, Thanks for the tip on the RRS TA3. I looked at it and wished it had a higher load capacity than 25 pounds. I suspect, eventually I'll bite the bullet and save up some money for the Gitzo ...
  • Ellis: I agree with you, ultimately the tripod spider level will be the least important level to utilize. My gimbal head has a level and I have a small bubble level that attaches to the flash ...
  • Currently, my largest lens is the Canon 100-400 L version 2, which I will use bare with my Canon 7D version 1 and I will use with the Canon 1.4 extender version 3 and my Canon 1DX Mark 2.
  • Thank you for checking all of your Gitzos and providing me with this feedback. I agree, close would be close enough for me. Although dead center would be welcomed, I would be comfortable with the ...
  • Thanks for checking your tripod. I agree, the ball head will easily compensate for the deficiency in the tripod's level; however, I'm not prepared to spend another $300 US dollars to purchase the ...
  • Created discussion thread Gitzo Quality Control?
    I purchased a new Gitzo tripod model GT4543LS. It's a very stable tripod and appears to be well made except I noticed that it is not level per it's spirit when placed on level flooring with the ...
