There comes a time...

There comes a time..., originally uploaded by Allen Rockwell.

There comes a time in every young man's life when he needs to get serious about tripods.

For about the last year I have been supporting about $9000 of equipment (600mm f/4L and 1D Mark III) on a $100 monopod and I have to admit that I've nearly dropped this rig more than once, especially when trying to juggle more than one camera. So this week I got serious and bought a tripod and head that are made for this sort of heavy gear.

Gitzo GT-2530 Mountaineer 6X carbon fiber tripod and Wimberly Gimbal Tripod head II.
