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

As long as you can remove the quick release clamp from whatever ballhead you own you can switch it out for an Arca-Swiss compatible clamp of any style and use the MUCH better Arca-Swiss style L...

Re: Nvidia surround and Spyder4 pro.

It got too annoying using a multi-monitor setup on a computer that I used for photo editing, gaming, CAD, programming, etc. Each task seemed to need different setup and configurations. years ago I...

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: Tripod mount plate for Rode mic

Yea probably just some offset cold shoe mount. But why is it you feel the hot shoe on the camera is not secure enough exactly? You realize flashes weight more than those mics do and that you can even...

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: Why you have a battery grip ?

Since I already use the Op/Tech system for my neck straps I just picked up the Op/Tech Dual Harness setup for shooting weddings. Cheap, works great and makes hefting the weight a lot easier than dual...

Re: Microphone for Canon Rebel SL1

Do you intend to mount it to the top of the camera? If so, you dont need wireless and can use one of the Rode products. If you intend to put it on a subject with say a lav mic, $100 wont even come...

Re: Monopod... tilting head?

None better than the Really Right Stuff BH-01 Monopod Head. Not cheap though and youll have to be in the Acra-Swiss style quick release plates system already. Other than that I dont think there is...

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: Grip question, concerning tripod mount straps

Nope, the Canon one is metal. There is a reason they cost so much more as they are pretty much all the time much better built than any third party one. Over the years there have been a couple that...

Re: Can anyone recommend a good storage bag?

Re: How Does This Tripod Look?

Never heard of the head. Maybe see if they are willing to separate and just get the legs and get yourself a Markins Q10 for the head. Thats a perfect match for a Gitzo 2 series.

Re: Really Right Stuff Gimbal Head

Yea I saw those, but doing a search on eBay of Sold Listings they usually go for $100-$140, so those two are asking too much.
