Hey everyone, I have a question. Should I buy the Manfrotto Super Clamps "WITH studs" or "without" if I am going to be using it with Avenger F1000's.

The Avengers come with the 5/8 Swivel Spigot that will attach to the Super Clamp right?

Yes sir. Regarding the superclamps, you can order them with the studs and use the studs if you do lighting stuff. You'll need to order at least one with the stud so that you can attach your tripod head to it

The stud that comes with the avenger isn't removable?

just lose the lens flare, it's even more obvious that it's PP when you look at the cloned out license plate and the flare is still there..

Thanks for the advice ;)

Leave you some more shots

Really sharp, lots of potential but the framing is killing my neck.

The s2k shot would be superb without the extreme angle

QUOTED IMAGE

All sorts of things I would have done differently with this image, but I still like it a lot, and the colors just force it to work. Good job.

Thanks! Its my first try using my aluminum tubes, got kind worried since there's no bolts holding the pieces together.

Right after this shot the suction cup got stuck and took me half an hour to remove. The owner have to rush after that. :( Would love to try more frontal shot, but it's not to be.

Would you guys use a CPL or ND filter for rig shots?

depends on how strong the ambient is. I prefer to always use a CPL to cut down on reflections

I wait for the light and use a CPL, works every time. If you're forced to shoot at mid-day though, you'll need an ND.

I just ordered a ND8 square filter. But afraid using it on wide angle lens, would show the filter holder. Or you guys use the more expensive circular ND?

I'm using the slim type holder for the square filter, it doesn't show any distortion whatsoever, unless I'm stacking a CPL with it or using two square filter, ND8 + ND4. I'm thinking of getting the NDX filter, which is adjustable from ND4 ~ 400.
