Lighting / home studio equipments?
« on: June 28, 2013, 01:20:00 PM »
I'm planning on setting up a home studio and I have no idea where to begin. 
Can anyone give me an idea with what lights I should get and flashes and all other must-purchase equipments?

An equipment list and links will be very helpful!

Thank you!

Third Party Manufacturers / Gitzo Center Column Jammed
« on: April 01, 2013, 01:17:24 PM »
Has anybody experienced with the issue of center column getting jammed?  I recently purchased Gitzo 2541 and in my first use, I guess I tightened the center column knob too tight that it wouldn't twist anymore to make it loose.  Any advices? 



I am in need of purchasing a tripod for traveling.

I have 5d MK III and will be using 24-70mm mostly.

I'm looking at Gitzo GT- 2531 Mountaineer 6x and Manfrotto 055CX PRO3.

I tried both and I liked both.  Price and quality with Manfrotto is good but loved the easy use and weight of Gitzo. 

What do you think?  Recommendations? as well with ballheads. 

I appreciate it.

Thank you!


I need to get a tripod for 5d mk III.  I will be using 24-70mm II most of the time, outdoor. 

I did my research and it seems like Gitzo is mostly recommended.

With my gear, will it be safe to get Gitzo 1 series?  or just go with 2 series for safety? 
(I prefer a lighter tripod but wasn't sure if 1 series is sturdy enough?)

And any recommendations for a ball head?   
With Gitzo 1542T, it seems like Markins Q3T is a good combo, but does that work well with Gitzo 2 series too? 

And if anybody can recommend a LESS PRICEY ball head with as good quality, I would really appreciate it!

** if available, can you please post links to the products too?     

Thank you!
