Me again

When I bought my 350D, I bought a bundled set of kit with it too. I got a Lowepro Micro Trekker and a Velbon Ultra Maxi F.

What I want to know is has anyone had any issues with the Maxi F and images looking like the tripos moves/wobbles when taking a shot.

I don't think I've had a crisp shot taken off the tripod yet and I'm getting a little annoyed with it.:evil:

A little more info, or a sample picture would help. How are you releasing the shutter? If you are using a cable release, or the timer, you shouldn't have any issues. If you are just manually pressing the shutter, then that's most likely your problem. The Velbon isn't the most robust of tripods, but it should handle your rig just fine.

I've just acquired an infrared remote so hopefully I should be OK from now on, thanks

I have the same camera/tripod, and like was mentioned above, when I use my cable release it's fine:)
