    400/2,8 + 1.6x body... wah.

    Anyway, dun think it's a good idea to use any ballhead with a heavy lens like that and a monopod.

    Default My humble attempt

    My humble attempts... First time shooting with a 20D. Still not used to the camera compared to my usual 1D/1D2. Oh well. Must adapt. Nice camera, nice championship!
