They should never let a man with with a camera have this many days off work with nothing to do but find stuff to buy for his hobby.

anyway, I went to the camera shop today and spent way to much money on goodies I just had to have.:?
I found a tripod that I think I'm going to get a lot of use out of. it only weighs about 1 & 1/2 lbs. folda up to 5"X13.1/2"X1" thick! is sturdy and converts to a mono pod. the pix say more than I can. it list for $199 but B&H has it for $135. I got mine for $45.


here is a shot of it open

oh, here is what the mono pod looks like...

That's cute! I'm not sure it would be useful for hiking/outdoor use since it has that long center pole, but it sure would be handy for a light-weight carry-around. And it would also be very useful for flashes, hanging reflectors off of and things like that. For $45, a great buy!

I'm leaning toward Gitzo legs and a RRS head at the moment.
