early chrimbo pressie

needed a new tripod so asked santa for one...... went out with the intention of the manfrotto 055cl with 804rc2 head kit but ened up in a small independant camera shop in edinburgh and came out with the Slik pro 400DX, very happy with this tripod after trying it out in edinburgh last night......... will do a review if one of hte crew add it to the equipment list?

Re: early chrimbo pressie

Congratulations Fi, a good tripod is an essential photography tool in my opinion

I'll nudge the gentleman in charge of the equipment review section to oblige so that you can write a review.

Re: early chrimbo pressie

Good choice, Fi.

I have a Slik Pro 400DX and a Manfrotto 055PRO, and I much prefer the Slik. The fluid damped head is a joy to use, and it's also good with a spotterscope.

Re: early chrimbo pressie

I am getting a very late Christmas prezzie.... about 5 months late by my estimates!

Now, can anyone possibly guess just what I will be waking Santa up for come May-ish?

Re: early chrimbo pressie

I got the Tamron 18-270 last week, and today Santa delivered a 430EX-II to keep my 550EX company, so I've been playing today.

P.S. Almost forgot.... and yesterday a ThinkTank Digital Holster 20 arrived.
