Holy sh... that photography blows me away... Time to get myself a tri-pod and ditch my point and shoot. There is no way I can that quality without a nice rig. My 12 megapixel is nice especially when I put some finishing touches on it with software but monkeys of fire....

Good compact tripod?

Joe & all:

What makes a good compact tripod?

Is the "Joby Gorillapod" any good?

Thanks!

I have a gorilla pod. it works pretty good as a conventional tripod, and of course has the advantage of being able to be used in so many ways. You can wrap it around a branch a pipe, or even your handlebars. But gently - how do I know this?

Do you use a pure sine wave converter or a modified sine wave converter? I learned from some expedition forums that pure sine wave converter is highly recommended for charging batteries for electronic gadgets, because the modified sine wave might fry the charger / batteries. What is your experience with the converter?

joe's obviously the best person to answer this... but he answered some of the questions on the box itself, and how it charges in this thread: HPRC Electronics Hard Tank Case Version 2.0 - Think Inside the Box. i think the box has gone through some "normal" modifications by this point (joe seems to redo everything every few months), but the basic design seems to be the same (as far as i can tell from the pics)


joe - looking forward to more pics!

I bow to your experience, Sir Finn! And look forward to reading your New Foundland saga as well as the conclusion to your GS mis-adventure. So much to learn...

Great stuff as usual Joe.

Gotta love them Newf's! Salt o' the earth.

If you're headed west back to Chicago through Ontario, drop a note, Carl and I will meet you for cocktails.
