Re: Review: Benro C-269 Tripod with B-1 Head (and pictures)

I don't find 5 sections to be a problem at all. In fact, I'm able to unlock all 5 sections at the same time when the tripod is in the collapsed position. Stability is also not an issue for me and...

Re: Can you do NON-MACRO BOKEh with the s95?

I just received my S95 the other day, and love it so far. I wouldn't depend on the f/2.0 lens, however, if you are trying to get a shallow DOF in non macro mode. Grab your DSLR for that task! For...

Re: My homemade spherical panoramic head design (w/ pics)

Re: DIY Pano Head

Looks great! Do you have any pictures and information regarding your home CNC setup? I would like to see how you were able to cut those slots in the aluminum and recess into the disk.

Re: Review: Benro A-269 Tripod

Nice, looks just like my C-269!

Squiress -- no the legs do not rotate as there is an anti-rotation mechanism that prevents them from doing so.

Re: Review: Benro C-269 Tripod with B-1 Head (and pictures)

It is 20.5" inches if folded without flipping the legs 180 degrees to cover the ball head. Folding it this way, however, I am unable to fit it into the bag as the ball head sticks out too far.

Re: Review: Benro C-269 Tripod with B-1 Head (and pictures)

I have not used this setup with the 24-70 f/2.8 on it, but the setup should be more than enough to hold that lens. I have used my 70-200 f/2.8 on it and it holds the camera/lens combination without...
