  • 500px is pretty good, I think they have added a feed back option.  1x is very art oriented and somewhat closed to what they will accept.  I think while most of what they publish is good, much is ...
  • Have you thought about a bag you like (not a camera bag) and then get a small padded bag(s) for your camera and lens.  Crumpler used to make the "Haven" that inserted into a regular bag to pad ...
  • I can't advise you on the legs, but I have both a Markins Q3 and the RRS BH-40. I know you were looking at the Markins 10 and 20, but really for what you are using the Q3 is enough (unless you ...
  • Try Ebay for a used Kirk, RRS, or Markins.  A used head will normally work as well as a new one but with a few blemishes.  If you buy a cheap ball head, and use a tripod a lot, you will probably ...
  • Sorry, never heard of them.  Keep at it, maybe someone has one.  You might try the reviews on Amazon.
  • Submitted a challenge entry Zugspitze, Germany
    The Zugsspitze seen from Garmisch-Partenkirchen.
    Placed 22nd in the challenge. The Zugsspitze seen from Garmisch-Partenkirchen.
  • Submitted a challenge entry Small Ranch
    Placed 47th in the challenge.
  • You are going to like that set up!  The BH-55 is just sweet to use and you will find, or at least I did, setting up a RRS tripod and taking it down is no problem at all.  I think I will go set up ...
  • Commented on photo Haystack Rock, Oregon in the An A to Z of Subjects- Week 8. H challenge

    That really is a sweet photo. Nice job, and yes timing is very important.

  • I believe that they will give you a package discount if you buy a tripod and ball head at the same time.  Either email them or call them, they have quickly responded (with in a day) when I have ...
  • I went with the TVC-33 several years ago and I love the tripod, except for the length when I have to cart it around. I am often away from a car when I go out, whether it is hiking or just ...
  • Replied in Gorillapod
    For an inexpensive, light, and small tripod I have used a Gorillapod by Joby. It works O.K. I never really trusted it to hold my camera and lens without my hand on it,  just something to help hold ...
  • Replied in Kind of:
    I have their multi-row pano set up and a panning clamp on my BH-55. It all works very well together. I was afraid of non-compatibility issues when buying different parts of a pano set up from ...
  • Replied in Kind of:
    I don't think you will be disappointed.  I had a hard time convincing myself that one of their tripods and ball heads would make much of a difference, but then I bought a support system from them. ...
  • Replied in Kind of:
    They had free shipping in November.  Other than that I have never seen one.
  • I use a Mountainsmith photographic backpack that allows you to place a tripod on the side. I have attached a RRS TVC-33 with a Bh-55 ball head on it with out a problem (well you do have to watch ...
  • Submitted a challenge entry Sunset in the German Alps
    Placed 6th in the challenge.
  • I agree, I would probably be more upset if someone took my tripod and ball head than my DSLR.  Cameras come and go, a good tripod will last the rest of your life.
  • Commented on photo Big Orange Balloon in the OC in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge

    RuthC, Thank you for your kind comments. I entered the photo as B&W simply because I liked how it turned out. The balloon in B&W has a silver glow that appealed to me. If you would like to see...
