Gotta love Italian designers - from Manfrotto to Ferrari to Versace, Armani, Bruno Magli, and all the women's designers I have no clue about -

The best thing about the Manfrotto stuff is it not only looks great, but works and lasts - (can't say the same about the Italian cars - or the shoes - at least in my experience) - When was the last time anyone saw a new Fiat or Alfa in an American showroom? LOL

Those little tripods are too cool - wish I had a reason to buy one!

:cool:

Peace,
D.


Wow, what a nice picture! You must have a really great camera!

Ironically, Fiat just started selling cars in the US this year.

I may have to try that with my G12, that is a pretty neat little gadget.
Currently have a Gorillapod I bought at REI last year for my A620 that I recently sold.

It’s incredibly neat. It can sit folded on the bottom of the camera. Plus there is an extra female ¼" screw socket. The con is that it’s a quadrapod and not a tripod. But it has its uses.

I have a Gorillapod. Can't live with it.

I love the gorillapod, it's such a cool design. Wish it could extend out like a little longer.

I bought one of these:
http://www.dealextreme​.com …-tripod-for-cameras-39817 (external link)

It's actually pretty sweet. It's quite flexible and sturdy. Not quite as nice as a Gorilla Pod, but at $15 shipped, it's quite a bit less expensive.

I actually use it with my XSI with no problems. There's a little bit a shake when you press the shutter button, so I either use the 2 second timer, or my wireless remote.

For a pocket table-top mini tripod that will also do "portrait", there’s the
Manfrotto 209 Table Top Tripod / Manfrotto 492 Ball Head / Manfrotto 259B Extension For Table Tripod - combo.

Even though in many cases you can hand-hold a camera when taking a picture, it is always better to use a tripod. Careful inspection of the sharpness of the film [Sic] will often reveal that photos taken with the camera on a sturdy tripod are sharper than hand-held photos even though the shutter time was fast.

Correct. I almost never hand hold a camera.

I tried out my gorrillapod a little more last night and can see why. Handheld in low light iso was hitting 800, any less and blurry image. On the gorrillapod I could get it right down to 80.

The only problem I find is that there is not always somewhere at the right height to attach from tripod to.

It’s maybe a matter of “photographic culture” but I really don’t like handholding a camera - even with a short lens. It’s not just completely eliminating camera shake and setting whatever shutter speed you damn well want, it’s often a matter of getting considered framing.

Though I’ll stretch to a bean bag.

I have perforce ended up with 15-odd tripods and other devices.

lol, I'm not that bad yet. Although since buying my s95 I have been coverted to raw and using a tripod for low light shots...:) I even tried it on manual last night and found it surprisingly easy to get some good shots (must admist the exposure guide in the right hand corner helped a lot)
