Ha... pretty cute.

I'm not a tripod shooter but some how I've ended up with small/medium/large. I have no idea why. GAS I suppose?...

Me too. I bought a decent Oben earlier this year that seems good as well. I just don't find myself using it much because it takes a bit to set up and some space once you are set up. I don't typically travel to very desolate places. I have 4 small kids and typically go on family cruises and try to get the best landscapes and family shots I can.

Never been a big tripod user. Thinking if I had something easier to carry around I might use it more. Going to give this one a shot. Doesn't hold a big heavy lens, but seems pretty good.

I have the pixie by manfrotto, and I honestly use it all the time. Ground level or tabletop. When I go on a landscape mission, 2 tripods would be a minimum, and the pixie counts as 1.

I keep one of these in my bag with a ballhead. Comes in handy at times.

I needed that two weeks ago for sliding on the sand when shooting the Black Skimmers. ON my wish list now! Thanks!

Did some more covert shooting this past weekend...my family along with friends stayed in a very rustic lodge in the mountains celebrating the 50th wedding anniversary of one of my best friends parents...I was there both as a friend and a photographer...my daughter making a new friend, spending some time doing what little girls like to do...

The light through the windows was very soft, northern side light...just highlighting them...I was coming out of the upstairs when I saw this and just had to shoot it...the soft fade of focus on the 85GM will keep it in my bag forever!

I was torn between the 2 and went with the Pixie. This looks like a very flexible option as well. Still may end up with one. lol

We spent a long weekend 'kraulting' West Virginia.
Why West Virginia? That's where the dart hit the board :)

Met this gentleman in Roceverte WVa and enjoyed breakfast with him.
He suggested places to see in that area. Because of our beard commonality
I was drawn to engage him in conversation. He didn't mind a snapshot at all.
Poof and I finished breakfast first and when paying I told the cashier to include
the man in the corner with the beard-my way of saying thanks.

For shooting birds like skimmers, I've read that this NatureScapes Skimmer Ground Pod II (external link) works well too.

Thanks Gene, looks great. They too are proud at $99. I'll have to reflect on how often I'm lying in the sand....hmmm....once in my life so far.

I remembered that Nighthound uses or used a ground pod along with his 500L which inspired me to look into it as a suggestion for you.
