If you do, make sure it just touches the ground slightly or it will start to swing easily and make your tripod more unstable.

This is a good tip. I will try this I will pay attention to that. The place I go to is very popular to joggers/walkers and my tripod vibrates when they walk around my tripod but very minimal perhaps hanging the backpack should solve that minimal vibration. Thanks Levina.

Nice.

If you don't mind me asking, what did a 95mm B+W run you?

TOO Much ($250+)! But, I enjoy landscapes, so it's a must have:

New to the Forums from Portland Oregon!

I got in on this one the day after Christmas, arrived on Jan 22nd...

Yesterday was my first chance at really putting it to the test, these are on the 70d / ISO 1600 / F8-F11 / The red tails are BARELY cropped as I completely lucked out with him being just a few feet from the car having a little snack:lol::

QUOTED IMAGE

Awesome series.

I've seen just a swinging camera strap make a 10x magnified LiveView frame oscillate back and forth.

I think wood is the best for dampening, then CF, then aluminum. Is that correct?


If steroids are illegal for athletes, should PS be illegal for models?

That's been the ranking I've always seen.

^^ Yes, but other factors are involved. Such as number of tripod sections (3,4 or 5) and leg diameter (bigger is generally better). So you could have a light weight CF 5 section tripod that would be less stable than a 3 section aluminum tripod.

I use a backpack type bag, and it isn't tall enough to touch the ground when hooked to the tripod. What I do, is put the backpack on the ground, then use a bungee cord to connect it to the tripod hook. The weight is there, but the bag is solidly on ground. Seems to work well for me.

That sounds like a good idea! Gotta get a bungee cord to put in my bag.

Make sense. Thanks, that is a good idea.

Crazy weather and lighting again here today, but I managed to catch this female Downy as she paused for just a moment before flying off into the snow and wind.

One from yesterday - much better lighting than today. This is one of the first ducks I've ever photographed. The Tamron likes lots of light! (so does the 7D)

That's a pretty stunning Wood Duck there, Neal; nicely done!
