    My current SLIK F730 has a nasty habit of drooping no matter how much I tighten the head. And no, I currently do not have any super gigantic cameras or lenses, just my 70D with a grip and a Tamron 70-300 VC and Canon 15-85 IS USM. I just need the tripod to be steady. And since I needed a new...

    I know it's expensive, but as far as I am concerned, I am always happier to have and not need than to need and not have. So I tend to spend a little extra to get something better that the run of the mill: The tripod I already have, the SLIK F730 (2.7K), like all mass market tripods, is a flimsy...

    This new version has several differences from the old one: 1. No Macro 2. Better optics 3. Better construction 4. VC - most important. I have been using it only a couple of hours and already I like the feel of it. Feels very solidly built, and the zoom ring feels just tight enough. There is no...

    As to lenses, I already have the EF-S 15-85 f/3.5-5.6 and the EF-S 55-250 IS II. I actually started out planning to get the 70D body only. The reason I changed plans to the 19-55 kit is that I wanted to try out the STM lens as a video lens. In that respect, I really wanted the 18-135 IS STM...

    The first pic is the original setup. Last cleaning was about 6 months ago. I take the thing apart and clean about every 6 months. The final pic looks dusty because of the reflection from the flash. Unlike a routine cleaning, this time we literally took the HAF-X apart, detaching everything...
