I have a CF tripod (Feisol CT3301) whose legs doesn't slide out smoothly anymore... Can I lubricate the leg columns with oil, or will that damage the carbon fiber material? Alternatively, how do I make the legs slide out easily? The locks are the twist-lock (Gitzo) types. Thanks!

I love those pictures.

A few years ago I went with a photo class to Mono Lake, CA. The water was about 3x more concentrated than the ocean, and my Bogen aluminum tripod was submerged nearly to the ballhead. I was trying to take a picture of some tufas with my Elan, when all of a sudden it wouldn't autofocus. I looked up, and saw that the 17-35L was barely on the lens mount; a few more millimeters and it would have ended up in that nasty lake.

Whew. Don't think Mack would have covered that in the warranty.
