    Finally the tripod trigger hath been pulled....no excuses now for

    any blurred photos.... Just ordered the manfrotto carbon 055 propod, the Markins Q10 ball head and plate to suit camera. Made a hole in the pension but life is too short. Still have money for beer, wine and sundry. . I have been wanting a good pod and head for a while now but kept putting it off but procrastination took a beating today....another victory for cash therapy

    Sounds like a good set up Graeme, One of these days I'll ditch my old $45 Tripod I do have another two , One is to heavy to carry around , It weighs 8kg and is fitted with a German Linhoff head , Very stable though

    Beer? ..... Wine? ..... and sundry??? (I'm assuming that sundry pertains to spirits?)

    Either way, it sounds as though not enough was spent on photographic gear in this instance!
    (once the decision to acquire new photographic equipment is made, you should never end up with the situation where any money remains)

    If blurry photos persist, don't blame the new tripod gear, nor yourself. The blame will rest squarely on this beer, wine and sundry

    Graeme.

    You hit the nail on the head when you inferred the more gear you get, the less excuses you can make.
