Oh, on a sidenote, when I bought this tripod, I also picked up one of those little el-cheapo5 inch, flexible leg tripods you see everywhere and suprisingly for only a couple of bucks. I now believeeveryone should have one of these stuck in their camera bag or shirt pocket. I always laughed at these things, pretty much considering them a joke, but the one I got is actually pretty stable and works great in a pinch. I can think of about a million times I could have used this thing in the past.
Eeeeee.....yup. The only gotcha is trying to rember to bring it. I gots tuh gets me a new bag with mo room...otherwise I'd certainly tuck it in there and take it everywhere. (sorry about my engrish)
