Re: i pad what version !

I rolled with an iPad 2 64GB for quite a while, but once the Air came out I knew it was time to upgrade. I picked up an Air 64GB 4G and wow do I love it much more. The Air is much smaller and lighter...

Re: LG 34UM95-P 21:9 UltraWide

Very good points. And no, I def do not need it and love my U3011 still. It was more of a "oooh thats new and shiny, maybe I want that" sort of thing. Think I will be sticking with my U3011 though. Is...

Re: LG 34UM95-P 21:9 UltraWide

Ive been kicking around replacing my Dell U3011 30" with one of these. A lot cheaper than my U3011 was and looks pretty cool. Not sure it would actually be an "upgrade" though.

From the manual: LINK (http://gdlp01.c-wss.com/gds/7/0300003557/02/ef16-35f28liiusm-im3-eng.pdf) second page, only states adding a filter is required for "adequate" dust and water resistance due to...

Yep, as with most accessories, dont go cheap, skip the third party stuff, save your money and buy the official brand.

Re: EF-100mm lens tripod mount

The not great reviews alone of that one you posted would steer me clear of it. Personally if I cant afford at the moment the official brand of an accessory I hold off until I do. Also, you have...

Re: Monopod... tilting head?

Thats my stance on it. I do know of guys putting some heavy setups on the 234RC and saying theyve never had an issue, but for my gear it doesnt even come close to cutting it. When I had a monopod...

Re: L-Bracket on Manfrotto 468 MGRC4

Re: The worlds most Awesome Tripod

Perhaps, but there again, if youre doing that stuff you want to go with the Kessler Crane tripod and head as well as their cranes if youre in the prosumer market.

Re: The worlds most Awesome Tripod

Yea pretty crazy, but way more expensive and way more tripod than 99% of people need. If you dont shoot with a CANON 600L or equivalent/larger lens, you wont ever need anything more than the already...

Re: Monopod Usage Policy

It pretty much just depends on the individual venue/locations rules. You really just need to call each one you plan to visit and ask.

Re: Precision tilt adjustments on tripod head

Geared head really is the best option. The Manfrotto 410 that SkipD mentioned is the cheapest I would recommend. I used to own it years ago. Save up and buy one or learn to use your hands. Most macro...

Re: Can anyone recommend a good storage bag?
