Thanks to Jay for pointing out this article about an insider's tour of Canon's lens factory and headquarters. Fascinating stuff. But still photography lenses seem to get short shrift in this discussion, and still camera bodies don't come up at all. It's all about the Cinema, baby...

It is indeed Zim. They must feel that the Cinema market will pay big dividends because they sure aren't paying a great deal of attention to us. I've considered an EOS Cinema product, but the product lines are so mixed, and the updates and technology seems to be advancing so rapidly, I just don't think the investment is worth it at this point for me. They were going to demo a "C" body to me around AFW time, but they never got back to me and I was too busy to call them about it.

Steve / Jim,

Are there any retail outlets that do RRS stuff?
I might be interested in pairing one of those ball heads up with my Gitzo tripod, but don't fancy trying to arrange shipping to the Mandaly Bay next week.

The cutaway of the 200-400 though is rather mind boggling...

If the elliptical pair look vaguely similar to a Spitfire, that's because I've read that the wing and tail shape were modeled directly after it. RJ Mitchell got it right the first time and I'm not sure a prettier wing shape has come along since. I love the laminar flow of a Mustang, but that Spitfire elliptical is pure grace in my mind. The British have designed some questionable airplanes in the looks department through the years, but the Spitfire is certainly not one of them.

Mark, Really Right Stuff has no retail stores. You order right from the factory, and the order may ship out out the same day if they have the ballhead in stock. I believe that they alternate production on their different items based on demand.

Jay, you have a way of bringing three dimensions to an image, consistently. You are quite simply, an exceptional artist.

Just put a few bucks into RRS's bank account. Looking forward to what certainly must be a finely made precision tool. For the past hour I have been trying to determine exactly what Gitzo tripod I own. The center column data plate is still readable, but nowhere on the tripod itself can I find a model number. I'm perfectly happy with it, and it seems to be as solid as a rock, but I wanted to do some comparisons.

I think the mounting plate that attaches to the camera bottom will add quite a bit of stability to the whole rig. Compared to the small quick release plates I use with the Gitzo head, RSS's plates are substantial.

Mark, I'm sure they would be happy to ship your gear anywhere you are going to be. There was something in the order process that indicated they require a few extra security steps from first time customers, particularly ones who are having their gear shipped to an address other than the one on their credit card.

Don't you just hate it when AutoCorrect steps in where it's not wanted? I had to re-re-recorrect 'ballhead' a dozen times yesterday.

Mark, don't hesitate to have RRS ship to your hotel: if they have it in stock their standard shipping will get it there by next week easily. Whatcha doin' in Vegas?

Jim, for my money, ditching the center column is what gets you the biggest step up in stability. You can hang weights from your rig to stabilize the sticks, but the center column will still be as sturdy/wobbly as it ever was.

Good point Zim. The center column on my Gitzo seems to be rock solid. Do you think I'd find a difference if I went solid? I'm not having the motion issues you and I chased around for a while. Worst scenario is in a jet, with flexible flooring, workers shaking the fuselage, etc. I'm getting tack sharp stuff. I've never liked flipping vertical with a platform head, especially the restriction when the arms hit the sticks, or the base. I think I'll really like the ball head. Sure hope so, as you pointed out, they are proud of their gear. I never mind that if the quality is there.

It's just physics and mechanics, Jim: there's no way a column can be as stiff as a tripod. The best you can do is limit the issues by keeping the column extension as short as possible, even if you have to extend the last, skinny section of your tripod's legs. This increases the natural frequency of column vibrations and reduces the vibratory amplitude: both are Good Things.

Are you investing in L-Plates, too? That's the best way to go portrait mode on a tripod. With the RRS quick clamp on top of the ball, you don't have to disturb the setup of your ballhead and it takes only a couple of seconds.

Uhhhh Steve, shouldn't RSS be RRS for Really Right Stuff? Just wondering.
