We're going to build one. I have a friend who is a bit of a geek and has been through it. He's offered to help spec out the components and get stuff together. In the weeks ahead, I hope to have it all together.
Thanks for all the input.
Wow! Obviously there are many of you out there with a ton of knowledge about operating systems. I fell way behind the curve over the years.
In reading everything that has been posted on this thread, I have come to the conclusion that the first thing I need to do is address my computer needs soon. Probably should be doing something about it now.
I am not about to take on a computer build myself due to lack of knowledge and will buy a pre-built, likely from Dell or HP. It appears I can purchase a pretty high capacity machine for the price of a small lens. The best processor with lots of memory. I'll just go for their maximum available build. i7 processor, 16mb memory, etc.. The remaining question for me is which operating system. Dell still offers Win7 along with Win8.
I have heard many advise against Win8. What is the problem people have with it? Which should I be going with?
You guys are the experts. I can use your help with this.
My guess is that Mt. Spokane either has 20K to spend on a deluxe full frame birding rig (1DX, 500 or 600mm f/4 L IS II, 1.4x and 2x TC III), or that he doesn't do focal length limited work.
This means hiking for great distances at times, so I am wondering if a second body (extra weight) is a must for someone investing his tie and energy in getting to a location in the middle of nowhere to shoot some nice pictures?

I am looking for videos to show how a leveling base works, what does it exactly do? I am guessing to level the tripod without having to making minor changes to the legs....
