  • Also, there's no nodal slide. If there's any foreground at all that's also going to be an issue.
  • I have to agree with the cautions everyone has mentioned. I think this is a scam. I subscribed to ExpressVPN for several years, and the subscription was always backed by credit card info that was ...
  • This means that if she had a flash she would have to put a CTO gel on it (half-cut or ¼-cut) or similar warming filter. On-camera flash would have to be only slight fill, and gelled as mentioned ...
  • This past week, I used this head extensively on a project documenting part of an art collection, comprising some framed art and some small sculpture. I started out using just the Arca-Swiss head ...
  • Replied in Bubble levels
    Yes but it doesn’t read in degrees.
  • Replied in Bubble levels
    After using this head for a while, I have to say that the inaccuracy of the bubble levels is slight, around 1 or 2 degrees using a smartphone app. But, in my experience that is enough to see in a ...

  • One person's opinion: https://thecentercolumn.com/2020/01/13/head-weight-ratings-are-useless/

  • Created user review thread Arca-Swiss Core 75 Leveler User Review
    Recently, I became aware of a new two-axis geared head from Arca-Swiss, smaller and less expensive than their famous Cube C1, but also having less travel in the geared axes: +- 15 degrees rather ...
  • This too is in my collection. This looks pretty good. No apologies necessary. I really can’t comment without giving it away.
  • Replied in Vienna, Austria
    Well, that didn’t take long.  Take it away, Albert!
  • All right, I'll do another one, this time not from Schwetzingen or even Germany. Please name the city where this photo was taken. I think I removed the XMP metadata...
  • I've been up in this, have some photos of it in my collection, and I did not recognize it. I think age is catching up with me, or I to it.
  • If a person can write a script for a video then why not a written review? Can't spell? The FStoppers site has gone the video way and is the worse for it. Now everyone seems to be getting on that wagon.
  • Yes, of course, this is Schlossgarten Schwetzingen. We had annual passes for this when we lived in Germany from 2013-2018. We thought it interesting that Finanzamt Schwetzingen was housed in an ...
  • Well - you're moving farther east, at any rate. You need to go farther yet. Here's another view, with the same structure behind.
