Where are you keeping the Irish whiskey? Good Lord... you can't traverse the countryside without some medicinal libations.

I picked up a manfrotto with the feet... the 5d mkiii plus a lens unstable if the monopod is extended... but if I keep the neck strap around my neck... I minimize the risk of it falling due to being unbalanced.
I tightened the ball and it isn't bad, but I feel as though I am lubing it up on the ball to keep it firm, but smooth.
It is heavy... but nothing a trip or two to three gym can't solve.
Do you have the one i have, or the video version with the semi pivoting feet? Mines pretty stable as long as it's in controlled environments... and that's with my 5d3 and 24-105... When using the 70-200, i have the collar so it's more balanced

At what point do our wives ask... so you really need all that gear to take family photos?
I'm at 12k-ish... so I'm expecting that conversation to happen any day now.
Just ask your wife how important are the memories of your babies?
(guilt works both ways in a relationship) LoL
I guess while we are discussing it... are there many advantages to using a softbox over using a big ass umbrella?
Yes, there are. Uniformity of the highlight, ability of putting the light source closer to the subject, shape of highlight in reflective surfaces, and slightly softer, less contrastsy results due to the above two first characteristics. Last, but not least, a slightly more professional and less "cheesey" impression made on overly impressionable clients is likely.
Not to be THAT GUY... but eventually there are diminishing returns. There are 120 hz tv's out there... and there will eventually be 240hz (if there aren't already), but does it make a difference? to some sure... but I can't imagine there are super human people who can detect the difference.
There are 2K 240hz screens out there..... actually, they are kinda common now $2800 will get you a 240hz 4K tv......
On other news, the latest GoPro will shoot 4K video at 30hz and 2K video at 120hz....
i will buy a 30" UHD 4k monitor as soon as a reasonable product comes along.
Next product I will buy will be an 8k monitor .. as soon as a reasonable porduct comes along.
After that? A 16k monitor.
And if I happen to live lng enough, after that a 32k monitor.
Power of 2. Definitely stay away from uneven numbers in all things digital.
5k ... most stupid thing on earth. Dell should have tried to first get a relly good 4k monitor made.
