  1. Many thanks Michael - well so far I've managed to find several quick release plates together with a Manfrotto 322 RC2 - can't remember the last time I used this but from what I remember the quick release plates never lasted very long, probably the reason why I've found several 😲 Carol
  2. Many thanks Michael, is it the road trip version you have? think that's the one I've been looking at although also the other link I used above was also aluminium not CF, so will check this out. Do you think it's sturdy enough to take a 24-70mm 2.8. I have also watched the video from your link and it certainly looks impressive. Thanks also to Harry Harrison and MizBrown for the info on plates and grips. I need to go through what I have already as I know I have some plates somewhere 😉 Carol
  3. Hi, thanks for the suggestion Harry but I've never got on with monopods. It would probably get used as a walking stick though thankfully I don't need one at the moment.... I'm still leaning towards......https://www.wexphotovideo.com/mefoto-roadtrip-a1350q1r-tripod-red-1537718/ just realised the other link I gave was for an aluminium and a lot more ££ I definitely prefer the legs that twist......also found a couple of Gitzo travel tripods on Ebay so will keep an eye on them also. Tempted the try the above..... Carol
  4. Hi thanks everyone for all your input, looks like I have a bit more research to do.....on the other hand I may go to the NEC in March - try before I buy - if I buy..... I'm quite happy using high ISO but sometimes I find myself thinking.........oh a tripod would have been useful, hence the reason I'm thinking a travel tripod would be useful when I'm away. I still have my Gitzo with gimbal head. I used this when I had my 200-400mm F4, although I did tend to use it handheld probably more than with the Gitzo. Sold that lens a while ago as it was very heavy, though I had good use out of it for many years, but I'll keep the Gitzo in case I decide to get another longer lens. If I did it would be the 200-500mm a lightweight compared to the 200-400mm ! For wildlife now I use anything that happens to be on the camera. Back to travel tripods - I did notice Costco were/are selling a Manfrotto one at the moment, as said I am not a lover of Manfrottos but anyway I took it out of the box to have a look......not for me far to fiddly and spindly so it went back in the box. So as said I think I'll go do a bit more research and maybe visit the Photography Show in March decide...... Thanks again everyone for all your input.... Carol
  5. Was going to say whatever it is you are on, can I have some also😉 However it made me look at the homepage again and notice now 190 million images OMG ! Carol
  6. Hi many thanks both, I have a Gitzo GT 3531 which is fantastic but not a travel tripod. Edo I will certainly take a look at the Silk you mentioned, I'm only about 5'4" 😉 This one seems to have quite good reviews also - ho hum https://www.wexphotovideo.com/mefoto-roadtrip-a1350q1g-tripod-green-1537663/ Carol
  7. Hi - thinking about getting one. Just wondered if anyone had any recommendations ? Would need to hold a Nikon DSLR. I dislike the Manfrotto ones😉 Thank you in advance.... Carol
  8. I had an email this morning passing images that I uploaded about 10 days ago even though they passed 24 hours after upload.... Carol

  10. Hi, Apple also do certified refurbished with warranty, here is the link. You may be able to get one a little cheaper... https://www.apple.com/uk/shop/refurbished Carol
  11. Interesting......up until recently I had the original iPad 1 which served me well. However, unsurprisingly was getting slower and slower so I decided to go for iPad mini 5. I don't use it for photography mainly reading although like to have some of my images on it. I went for the 64gb version which is plenty for me and it's really great. Also fits in my handbag if needed. Would be interested to know which is the best adapter to get for connecting to a TV though for a larger display ? I got a great deal on it on eBay brand new at least £100 cheaper than anywhere else and it has warranty on it. Carol
  12. Oooh that's interesting and what a coincidence, would love to know what museum they are going to be in and when but I don't suppose we will ever get to find out😐. Note to self....maybe book another cruise😀 Carol
  13. It's a funny old life isn't it - heaven knows what the world will be like in the next even 10 years😀 I have a love/hate relationship with technology, when it works it's great, when it comes to doing simple things like updates whether it's camera/phone/computer I break out in a cold sweat ! And as for internet shopping - far to easy to click 😂 Carol
  14. Seems fine just now though sadly showing same figures as yesterday😥 Carol
  15. Just wondering how to get updates on this thread without actually posting a comment? I think it's always useful to see what people sell.....none for me yet this year though... Carol
  16. Let's hope so Paulette 😉 I'll just open a bottle of wine....😀 Carol
  17. Considering only been seriously contributing for just over a year, I am quite pleased. However, now my graphs are pointing downwards but will not get too disheartened - she says😉 Carol
  18. I love to go out when it's snowing, hoping we get some 😉 - rain not so much..... Carol
  19. Am wondering, I have a lowly 3 stars and there's no greyed out 2 stars. Assuming live news goes through straight away - confused.com😀 Just uploaded a batch hoping they will clear tomorrow anyway... Carol
  20. I don't have a D500 though am a Nikon user. I think it's probably worth getting checked out by Nikon or Fixation or if you have an authorised Nikon dealer near you. If you don't, it will continue to annoy you me thinks😉 Hope you get it sorted. Carol
  21. Edo, glad you at least have your own pad for Christmas - onwards and upwards. All the very best for 2020 keep cooking and clicking! 😀 Best wishes to everyone else also for Christmas and New Year.... Carol
  22. QC envy again, still on 3 stars but they seem to go through in 24 hours so will settle for that😉 Carol
