  1. Re: 60 Rare Authentic Native American Photos You Must See Before You Die

    There are good sources for late 1800s/early 1900s photographs of aboriginal peoples, but this isn't one of them. Complete waste of time.

  6. Re: Portable Solution to Make Overhead (90) Photographs

    The FLM Quick Release clamp is one solution to connecting the Gitzo centre column/lateral arm to my Leica, but there's another option I have that would work for both the Leica and my 4x5. It's what...
  7. Re: Portable Solution to Make Overhead (90) Photographs

    Photos of the FLM QR clamp that @Ari sent from Ottawa (FLM QLB 80).

    Perfect fit for the 80mm diameter discs on the Gitzo centre column/lateral arm. The lever clears the disc, and the knob at the...

  11. Re: International Shipping Costs Seeem Outrageous, USPS, UPS, FEDEX, DHL?

    This is the main 4x5 setup that I plan to test this weekend. I'll be using a Gitzo Series 3 tripod. I'll test without, and if necessary with, a Manfrotto 410 Gearerd Pan and Tilt Head, which weighs...

    Note that it's possible to increase the extension on the left of the photo by omitting the Manfrotto head. This would reduce the load on the arm substantially, from 2.14kg (4.7lb) to 900g (2lb). My...
