Dear my friend mrsfotografie.
I love your fantastic Tricks that make me feel good, and you feel happy too.
My Trick are simple---Every time that I go to buy the new Photographic equipment from the Local Camera Shop, or Order from Internet---I must buy the Jewelry/ Diamonds/ Lady's Decor. Items for my dear wife, which cost 25% more than my Equipments----Ha, Ha, Ha---That Why, She still love me, Not Kill me yet---So far. Plus, She is the Vice President/ Book Keeper/ CPA of my Company----She Know that , When I want another Big White Lens that cost more than the her 3 Carat Diamond Ring---Yes, Now she might want 5 Carats -Pure White Diamond Ring---Ha, Ha, Ha--YES, That will save my family life. Yes, I tell her that Canon EF 800 mm  will use for the Office Job, That I can shoot the Top of Building Details/ Architectural Detail with out risk my Life to climb the Building , and use Old 50 mm. Lens-----Ha, Ha, Ha.
Nice to talk with you.

That's very funny Surapon, and I think those rules work across all cultures.

There's also the special case that seems to be a Thai exclusive, when I was a very young soldier I was enamoured of a very Lovely Thai Lady (are there any other types ??), she clearly pointed out to me what happens when anything comes between her & her love/interest for you, they arrange for a duck to eat what's left of your Family Jewels, generally this applies when your interest might momentarily shift to other young ladies, but Obsessive Camera interest always concerned me as a possible cause, so I sold all my Cameras during this interlude.

Fortunately I must have read the situation right as I'm now the very proud father of two growing sons, and everything is still where it's supposed to be, mostly.

This might be the ultimate reason for your very fair attitude where your lovely wife is concerned.

Ok by me.  Even without a grip, a full size dSLR with lens(es) isn't 'packing light'.  When I had a 7D and 5DII, the grips were always on them...except when shooting critical shots from a tripod. I like not having to remove the grip to eliminate the extra vibration it causes.

I use a grip all the time when I use a tripod. I wasn't aware using grips could cause vibration. Please explain how that could be. I shoot alot of landscapes/skyscapes including lightning and I want the sharpest picture possible (as I am sure everyone does ;)). Thanks...

Hi,
I think it would perhaps have been more accurate to say the vibration a grip permits, if you want to check, try flexing the camera with grip, vs the camera without grip when attached to a tripod, you will find significantly more flex with grip than without, this would translate to vibration as it is obviously less rigid.
This was he first test I made with my new grip, no plate on grip, I just have it in my bag ready to put on the body after removing the grip when I want to tripod mount. Also means it doesn't have to dig in to my hand as there is no benefit to having it on there.

Cheers Graham.

Interesting, but being a 99.99% handheld shooter I think I'll be okay with my grips :D

Adding a grip would also raise the centre of gravity of the camera yes?  So having almost a 1kg lens (24-70 2.8) raised an inch or so higher would accentuate any flex through the camera or tripod.

she clearly pointed out to me what happens when anything comes between her & her love/interest for you, they arrange for a duck to eat what's left of your Family Jewels,
Ouch! :o ... this reminds of a news report I head read many years ago about a lady in Bangkok who bobbitised her husband (during coitus), tied it up to a helium balloon and sent it off into the sky because he was cheating on her. When the police asked her why she had to tie it up to a balloon as well and why wasn't just chopping it off was not enough for her, she said that she had heard of another incident of a lady who threw her man's tool in the backyard (after bobbitising him) and the guy picked up his tool and got it stitched back at the hospital. :o
What worried me about that story was the thought of a decomposed tool coming down from the sky (when the helium runs out after a few days) and landing in someone's picnic basket or an outdoor barbecue party  :o :o :o

Hi Folks,
I wonder if Lorena ever considered her actions might lead to her name becoming the verb for her actions?
Bobbitised.  ;D

Thanks Mr Surapon, eml58, Rienz, made me cringe, but also gave me a good laugh, really like the humour on this forum!

Cheers Graham.
