This looks really cool! Where did you get it from?

I've got one of these as well. Picked it up off eBay (external link) (UK). It's a great bit of kit.

I keep getting tempted to buy one of those - what are they like in the had for anyone with a grip?

I'm worried about the thumb screw digging into the palm of my hand.

Quite similar to the Custom Brackets CB Mini-RC then, looks larger though.
The Mini-RC's screwpoints sit flush with the base also.

My coolest accessory? My Three Legged Thing "Tony". Very stable, very stylish, has a load capacity of 26.45 lbs, weighs only 3. Very cool.

I agree... I love my 3LT... I actually use it more than my Gitzo.

That 3LT looks pretty cool. I am not sold on the head though. Can I easily replace it with an Acratech?

Yep.... and that's exactly what I did.... The head that comes with it isn't absolutely horrid... but I already had the Acratech for my Gitzo... so, I swapped it over to the tripod I use more... The head is "usable", and worth the extra few bucks to have it as a kit with the legs.

But.. yeah... I like my Acratech a whole hell of a lot better.

This thread is going to make me spend a bunch more money...

I don't have a link right now (I'm at work and most sites are blocked), but one of my favorite accessories since I got them recently are my filter-reversing rings, in both 72mm and 77mm allowing me to put a lens on my camera backwards for some amazing macro. the fact that they were $4 each doesn't hurt either!

Ah cool, good to know. I'm actually really happy with my Gitzo legs, but I've looked at RRS and now this, just to see what alternatives there are.

This is an update to an old friend. It's the Wintec 202 GPS logger. I've used the Wintec 201 for the last two years on each trip, and it faithfully records long and lat and uploads them to the computer via Bluetooth to attach to each photo file. The problem is that it records only 130,000 points at one per second before it loops and wipes out the first point, then the second, etc.

The 202 has a 1 GB micro SD card, and can record 1.2 million points before it's full. That might sound like overkill, but because I turn it on at breakfast and off at dinner so I don't forget to do it while I'm shooting, a 20 day trip uses a lot of data points.

It's got a 24 hour rechargable battery, and some other goodies not in the 201, which goes into my backup kit. Weight is 55 gms. You need a lanyard to find it in your pocket.

Looks like it is sold out now. Any other alternatives out there?

Email them. It's Taiwan. It's a big hit, I don't think they would stop making it unless they went out of business.

I like this power strip because I can turn lights on and off without having to go to individual strobe.
