Tripod parts combined

The head and legs both arrived last week. Some people don't seem to understand why I'd spend $1k on these bits, so I figured I'd take a couple pictures to show how it is different from my old $150 kit. Things like 'build quality', 'strength / stability', 'weight', 'speed of reset' are hard to take pictures of, so I had to pick a couple shots that seemed vaguely interesting.

It's a lion get in the car!

By now everyone has seen the "Jesus Christ, it's a lion! Get in the fucking car!" picture. Well, this is an example of why you need to heed that little kitty's warning. (or not...)

There are many fine sets of legs in France. Whether they were developed in France, or simply put on display in France.

Unfortunately our friend Audrey here has only two legs, which while great as a photography subject is not optimal as a photography platform. French company Gitzo (Le choix des professionels!) decided to fix that problem.

How to spend a lot of money and not actually buy anything

I love things that allow me to purchase accessories. Accessories allow you to differentiate, customize, and optimize your kit. They also allow you to buy things without getting yourself some whole new thing, becuase you know 'hey, this isn't some new thing, this goes with that thing I already bought!'

This weeks base product is my Canon 30D, and the accesory is a ball head.
