+1!, great thread!I "upgraded" my handstraps http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=19696.msg371049 with this http://www.amazon.com/dp/B003HNTL6Q/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=2I11YFOGFI76L&coliid=IIRPZAFCP6CIV almost perfectly matches the "L" red.COOL! ... I thought this thread (like a few of my other threads) is probably doomed with no contribution ... nice to see people contributing, especially when an Admin chips in , it makes it all the more special - Thank you. I think these inexpensive little things can help control our GAS problems, especially when the wallet does not support the "desire"
Someonewhoknows says it more eloquently, but basically he switched because he's a whore.
Think that may be a touch harsh. He's a media person who employs +/- 50 full time people and has a lot riding on his success. Thats a lot of healthcare, paid vacations, 401k's, salary, etc etc to worry about each month. Someone comes along with a sponsorship, you would listen too. And I promise they didn't sign Scott, they are sponsoring all his classes, videos, workshops, etc. He doesn't "have" to change but to be honest, yes he does. Race car driviers don't have to drive the car they race for on their day off but they do. Bruno Mars can drink whatever soda he wants but I promise you won't see him in public with a coke cola. Thats the way the game is played. He's not an artist. It's no different that a working photographer taking a job to shoot for a healthcare or sports company. They pay you and tell you what they want/expect. Same deal here. Whore is an easy word to throw around anomously on the internet but expecting something for pay is hardly whoring ones self.
FWIW Since Scott has changed has his work really improved? He still does the same long lens shot of someone holding up their helmet and a 600mm closeup of someones face just like every other amatuer would if they got to go on the sidelines. Don't think a D4 or a 1dx really matters.
What did you do wrong? You bought a Manfrotto ballhead instead of one from Really Right Stuff, Kirk, or Markins.+1
Sorry, but that's the honest truth...
EDIT: I assume you were mounting via the tripod collar? My old 488RC2 would settle by ~5° under modest load, and would slowly drift over time. I upgraded to the hydrostatic 468MG, which still drooped by ~0.5-1° but no drift. I can mount my 1D X with 70-200 II via the body plate on my RRS BH-55, lock it down and it doesn't move...then leave it like that for days and it still won't move.
