    Re: Source for light meter calibration?

    The "Clalibration" caused me to be wary--until I realized the letters "Cla" may very well mean CLA, as in clean. lubricate, and adjust. So I bookmarked the site.

    Re: Camera / tripod brace for vibration

    A lightweight, adjustable hiking pole to prop up the lens or camera probably would work well in a pinch. If hiking with the camera in a pack, you likely would be using a hiking pole anyway. But...
