Just got the Gitzo 3530LS.

I'll have to post photos of it.

Is that a stock kit or modify lens hood?

It is a generic round 67mm screw-in lens hood available on eBay, Amazon or at most camera stores for a couple of bucks.

Although I have a stock Canon OEM hood for this lens, I will often use the round generic hood. It protects from flare quite well (the stock hood is designed for full frame cameras and is really too big), it doesn't vignette at any focal length (at least on my 1.6x cameras) and it protects the lens from physical damage as well or better than the stock hood. I fell down with my camera lens hitting the concrete hood first, propelled by my over 220 pounds of sheer muscle (oh well maybe not all muscle - there might be a tiny bit of fat on my frame). The lens hood was toast but the lens was not damaged. That hood, at less than five bucks, was the best photo investment I have made and saved a lens worth over a thousand bucks.... BTW: the OEM hood may have protected the camera equally as well. If any readers think so, just send me your camera, lens and hood. I will replicate the accident and report back to you. If you send me the postage, I will send the lens or lens parts back to you...

I always shoot with a pair of cameras and will often carry my 70-200mm f/4L IS lens in a holster case with a hand strap attached at my right hip. The lens fits fine in the holster case and I cover the hood with an OPTECH neoprene Hood-Hat.

Drawing the camera from the holster and removing the hood hat takes a split second and the lens is ready to shoot. The OEM hood is too big to work like that...

If I reversed the OEM hood, it is still a big package to draw from my holster and reversing the hood would take additional time...

My Gitzo G1227 retro-fitted with DIY spiked feet. Replaced the column with a Markins TB-20 base and Kirk BH-3 ball-head retro-fitted with a RRS B2-40 LR clamp. I think I have all the major players covered on this. Bicycle tape by unknown.

I bought the tripod about 11 years ago new from Robert White. Later made my own mounts and added some Gitzo spiked feet and rubber feet. Then added the Markins base and finally added the RRS clamp.

I started out with a Linhoff Profi II ball head with Kirk clamp and then switched to the BH-3 about 9 year ago and love it. Just wished Kirk had done a LR clamp.

Giottos MT-8180 Carbon Fiber with MH-1300 head and Arca Compatible Quick Release.

Modified SLIK Pro-330DX with shorter center column and Flashpoint F-1 magnesium Arca Compatible Ball Head. Weighs less than two pounds total and supports my 40D + 70-200mm f/4L IS lens just fine...

waht do you mean "modified"? i have been eyballing a few heads, that F-1 is one of them the others being the giottos "MH" series.
anyway, thanks for sharing, nice setup.
how is that tripod itself (slik pro.) in terms of sturdiness?


a little bit of this, a little bit of that
