Thanks.  Redged TSC 424W.  Got it cause it is light weight CF with twist locks and holds enough weight for my purposes.  Think they've subsequently replaced it with a newer model

Hi Cr's,

After a lot of internal debate, research, reading and reviewing threads here, I got my Gimbal, the LensMaster RH-2.  I looked at many different brands and rice ranges and decided on this product because the price is right, I actually won't use it that often (yeah, right....just wait until I start to find excuses to use it!), and it seems more than adequate for my needs.  Just started to play around with it tonight and it is easy to balance and seems very substantial.  The parts move smoothly and it was a snap to remove my Ballhead and put this on my legs. 

Here's some shots (courtesy of iPhone) of the 5Diii and 300 f/2.8 ii. Wish I'd had this for the "Red Moon" Eclipse.  Now I am ready to go back to Denali!

Great contrast on the B&W's.  How much is lens and how much is post?

Whoops.  Not me who did the post.........

BTW, enjoyed your beach shots from Kerala posted on a another thread


Any thoughts on the Gangster Museum of Valley of Fire?

Sorry, but I don't know anything abut that museum.


First, I just booked a half day mule ride for The North Rim Grand Canyon

IMHO, and this IS just an opinion......I've never seen a mule riding tourist who looked happy in the saddle.  I'd rather walk.  Plus, they limit what you can carry and I'll bet they don't allow photos from the saddle.  And, you are on their schedule and will only be on parts of trails where they go.  Walking, you can take your time, linger, and have more choices.  And, if you are of that type, you can carry all you want to your heart's content including a tripod, etc.

Little guys in a tree in the Tiger Preserve in Peryar (Southern India).  Taken with a 5diii, 200mm, 1/50, f/7.1, iso 5000.  Don't know what they were (species) but it looked pretty cool.  This is a crop form a larger image.

Here's one from a few years back.  It is "nothing special" with no real post processing, no polarizer, no HDR, but I like it because it reminds me of one of the best treks I ever had in Eastern Bhutan.  This was the view over my tent in the morning somewhere near Merak.  It has been my desktop wallpaper ever since........

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: should I buy a 7D now for Cad $690

IMHO, f the camera meets your needs and if the 40D no longer meets your needs, I'd go for it.  Waiting for the newest and greatest will leave you on the fence forever.  If, on the other hand, the high ISO capabilities will disappoint you, then get something newer.  When buying used equipment, it is always nicer to know exactly from whom you are getting the camera (as opposed to a pristine looking used body that may have been dropped, submerged or otherwise harmed but patched back together).  Look online to see what kind of prices others are asking for the 7D.  New 7D's are selling right now for $970 (unauthorized) to $1200 USD (Canon North America dealer).  In any event, you'd get better FPS and a better focus system than the 40D, which is also a great body.

Nice job of capturing the feel for the place.  It can be tough to expose around large bodies of water. Can you post some more?

I recently spent a wonderful time in Southern India. I wonder how many CR's have been there?  Maybe we should start a thread.  Here's one of mine from the "backwaters"....

Unless, of course, they are running after me!


To add to what others have said, June is the dryest and hottest month in the region.  Even at altitude, the sun can be tough.  Lot's of sun protection, a hat with a very large brim and (can't emphasize this enough) lot's of fluids are a necessity.  Oh, and DON'T reach under any rocks unless ylu really want to get a closeup with a long critter that has a rattling tail.

Seriously, I live here.  It is incredibly beautiful.  You will love the trip.  Just be careful
