Even though my birthday is Thursday March 1, I got to open my presents early this year (since I knew what they all were).

Not a tripod with a seperate ball head but just as versatile and heavy enough for studio or windy field work.

I just noticed from junne http://www.fotothing.com/junne/photo/27f935511e692bc43089f1bf99b528dc/ that it“s your birthday today!
So happy birthday! Or as we say here in Iceland:
Til hamingju meš daginn. (To happiness with the day).(Roughly).
And congratulations on the tripod, it looks great :-)

Best regards,
Karl Trausti from Iceland

now this looks like a great present! - much better than a programme!!

It looks great, PP! But... what's a ball head? I'm so curious now!!!
Mar 03 2007 00:14 GMT PhotoPro PRO
oni - ball head tripods have a seperate "head" that attaches to the tripod and the camera, the bottom is in the shape of a ball. I fits with special tripods that accept only ball heads. Usually much more expensive, but with some drawbacks.

I have an antique, a miniature, and a nice one almost like this but don't use any of them!!

you have a steadier pair of hands than I do Jim! :)

Thanks a lot for the explanation, PP! Never seen one in real life, though... I'm not even a close friend of tripods, even if I start beginning to see and understand some of their advantages.
I hope you're doing fine and getting along great with yours though :)
