Hi guys, just a quick question, where can I get an extension for Avenger F1000 suction cup? I went through Adorama, but they offer too many accesories so I couldn't find the right thing:

There is no extension for the F1000. Manfrotto does make a cups that take extensions, but the F1000 isn't one of them. I have had a customer take the F1000 apart, and fit my Rig-Pro extension, but he said it was so much trouble, he would never do it again. I would look into a different Manfrotto cup, or if you want something safe and reliable, Rig-Pro cup assembly.

Damn :confused: well I'll take look at your Rig Pro cups, I think having 1 Avenger + 1 Rig Pro shouldn't be a problem :-) Thanks for info.

One quick rig shot of my friend's Passat, took only 4-5 photos during that shoot...

Not a big extension, but this looks like it would be something

Also not sure if this would work or not, too lazy to go get my f1000

Hey everyone my name is Mike. I've been enjoying all the info in this thread for awhile now. There's some real inspiring work in this thread and I thank you all for that. I recently picked up a Rig-pro set up from Andrew. Very easy to deal with and quick prompt service and response to questions. The rig itself is very professionally made and packaged with thread savers on the exposed threads for their well being while not in use.
Thanks Andrew
This is the second time using the rig.I really enjoy shooting with it and look forward to future shoots with it. Any feedback on my shot would be appreciated.
Cheers

I am upgrading my ND filter, I was debating on getting a CPL filter as well, seeing how it will be the same filter size as the 70-200 (when i get it of course) I will already have a cpl.

How many of you guys shoot with a CPL filter? Does it help with PP? Which filter do you have?

you would have to pick up a studded cup. Without the F1000 assembly on top essentially.

I've looked into getting these myself/doing a DIY but these are the peices I was looking at.


6" woods cup studded $49.95 (external link)

6" extender spud $13.00 (external link)

Avenger Baby Swivel F/M 5/8" $31.59 (external link)

That should get you started.
