    OT but don't you think a tripod is clumsy in a studio along with the darn lightstands around (unless you use a studio with a ceiling system! )

    got my u8000 for 55 with bag... not a bad deal rite? i've noticed something peculiar... when i adjust everything nicely n all, and i proceed to tighten the nut on the tripod to secure its position, the position actually movess off slightly. this is really irritating if positioning is impt in the pic. r there any workarounds to this?

    This happens when you tighten the pan knob, right? I had the same problem with this tripod, so I know what you mean. Basically I just got used to it after a while, and just subconsciously compensate accordingly when adjusting camera position. Like so many other things about camera equipment, it's all a matter of discovering your equipment's peculiarities and figuring out how best to live with them.

    IIRC, someone did mention the unbeatable price from AP. But there are also people who have bought it at a much much higher price from the same shop. I guess it all comes back to luck.
