I can carry my Crumpler 7 Million Dollar Home on one shoulder and my Slik Pro 400DX on the other. No problems.
i am maybe old-fashioned but i prefer a HEAVY tripod for the all-round stability especially when its windy
Pan and Tilt head is more inconvenient (and sometimes dangerous) to operate but it normally grips alot stronger than a regular ballhead
Sorry to tag onto this thread but I think my simple question doesnt warrant a new thread.
I noticed someone mentioned using a beanbag and I think that's a brilliant idea. Any place to recommend where I can get a small one? Using an OMD btw. So a small one will do.
beanbag can DIY yourself .... just choose something light to fill it with .... dont use beans ... it might sprout once it gets wet in the rain
saw a few very innovative ideas
1. a silicone mouse wrist pad
2. bean bag filled with styrofoam beads
3. a $1.50 small bag of rice
4. a 50cent packet of salt
5. socks stuffed with I-dunno-what
sorry , straying OT from original topic
DIY bean bag:
1. Old socks with weird smell
2. Gravel from neighbors Lohan fishtank
3. Put 2 into 1 and tie a knot.
4. Put the bad into microwave and low heat for 15 minutes.
5. Bean bag is ready for usage.
Thanks! I bought the tripod set as recommended, Sirui T1204X + K10X.
I must say, it is sturdy and light And also easy to dissemble for washing!
Yes how much did it cost you?
I'm probably going to get a T1204X from TK also but undecided the ballhead to get.
Will anything apart from a G10 be overkill for my OM-D? The biggest lens I'm gonna use is just the 45-200mm together with HLD-6 both grips.
