Very nice!

I've been thinking of getting the IR remote - I've found using a flash, reflector and camera is a bit much. I'm also in the market for a tripod and head. I'm seriously thinking of taking a day off from work and wandering over to San Louis Obispo and a certain company's showroom over there. I just can't decide what to get, so thought I'd go check out a company that makes heads and plates and sells several different types of legs. I'm sure it's going to cost me a small fortune, but it just seems like it's not worth skimping. I have an old Velbon video tripod and I'm not going to carry that anywhere much - whatever I get will have to be lighter and smaller than that one (and I'm not crazy about the 3-way pan/tilt head it has, though I do like the quick release).

Thanks for the comments Harriet, I find even the wired remote helps when using a tripod, there is always a little shake when I press the triger so the remote really helps.

Once again really nice pictures. Glad to hear your fingers are doing better. I'm also considering a remote. How well do they work, are most using the Pentax brand?

Hey Stevie,
The one I'm using is for a Canon but works on the Pentax just fine. it's the wired kind with about a 3ft cord. I don't use the tripod without it. it only cost $20 and its well worth it. I don't know anything about the wireless type but, I'm sure they work fine, I just don't feel the need for one at the moment.
(that could change without notice):G
GW:bye:
