Mr Riley, those pictures are fantastic! WoW!

I believe fully in investing in a good tripod and ballhead....it is a world of difference

5D and Contax Distagon 18mm at f/11 frame 3
shutter 5 secs ISO100, might have been a Metz 54 MZ3 on it, cant remember

these are all on a Benro tripod and Gitso 3 way head, no idea what model its in the car, but its solid cheap'ish' and adjustable
I figured you were alot higher in aperture... thanks for spelling it out for us.

I was practicing in my new kitchen the other day and was shooting in the 11-14, I guess I wasn't that off

I just checked the price of the Gitzo tripods... OMG...

I have all the Olympus WA and you can shoot all the Zuiko wides successfully at f/4.5, 5D needs to stop down to at least f/11 or it looks terrible.

See if you can find some Benro tripods

I second that - a remote is a small investment if you're going to do this a lot. But an Oly wireless remote probably won't be very helpful for landscape shooting. Unless the Oly design has changed the camera's sensor for it is on the front of the camera (at least it is on my E-500), because it was intended to be used to take a picture of yourself. To use it to photograph anything else you'd have the hold the wireless remote in front of the camera but out of the lens' view. If the camera accepts a wired remote that would be a lot less trouble - they're very easy to use.

BTW, the wired remote hasn't changed since the E10/E20.

you can get wireless remotes from 3rd party manufacturers, can be a bit of a dice game though. I settled on Gadget Infinity remotes, but you need to be prepared to file some of the metal plug material for a secure fit and 100% shooting success rate.

For ultimate clarity in images at any time, a tripod and remote cant hurt (although I rarely do that myself)

on the need for stabilisation hey check this out

I was thinking of getting the wired remote. I found a competitively priced one on EBay.
