    Kodak Announcement

    John,

    Do you really believe that Kodak's stock price has taken a hit because of the announced strategy change?

    The drop in their dividend is what's killing them in the market this week.

    For those of you who don't have access to the WSJ site, there was some interesting information that doesn't make things sound quite as glum for film users as the CNN article does.

  9. Gitzo CF Tripods and Manfrotto 3275 Head can it fit?

    Actually David, I'd be very careful about this combination. I tried it out and was very dissatisfied.

    Without the center column on the Gitzo, the knobs are very restricted. Even with the center...

    Gitzo 3 leg sections vs. 4 leg sections

    Josh,

    If you're moving from a 3021, you'll be amazed at the difference in the 1325/48. I used the 3011 (same legs as the 3021, different locks) prior to getting my Gitzo, and I can tell you that...
