    Re: Need Sound Tripod Advice

    Well, carbon tubes could be great and slightly lighter, but one can get some wooden dowels and with corner blocks....create the frame. There are myriad ways to complicate this, but that's up to a...

    I'm looking at this with a potential fix, John. Found these triangular corner fittings and lightweight replacement tent poles (fiberglass) 7.5-8mm may do the job.....or some trimming/fitting may be...

  10. Re: My New Tripod: Gitzo vs Leica Surveyor vs Ries

    Although I have a nice Feisol CF, I'd go (today) with a ProMediaGear, since it's stout and offers 75mm video bowl. If I was to shoot LF only , I'd more than likely choose Ries. But, that's just moi.

    Re: Treatment of Ektachrome E100 ?

    Bernice, good idea (Plan B), but there is scarcity of 8x10 in E100 as well and B&H doesn't even carry it. Freestyle has it, but there is no one nearby (horse/buggy area) who could chop this down to...
