One quick pic…I’ve been helping Dan at EPIC Engineering out with testing springs for the 08-09 STI, and I took a quick snap of how it’s looking with the latest prototype rear springs and bumpstops installed. The car’s actually very dirty, but it didn’t come out in the photo 🙂 I added a little graduated ND filter for some emphasis on the otherwise plain background.
My MB-D10 vertical grip came in today. The camera already feels much more complete than without it. Nikon definitely did well on the ergonomics of this new grip. I’ll of course have a more detailed review later on, but until then, here’s a quick photo from my phone:
The first test for my new D300 and Velbon tripod legs was the Independence Day fireworks over Lake Union. Eugene’s roof ended up being pretty much a perfect location, with a nice view of the Space Needle in the background. Both the camera and tripod work flawlessly 🙂 Here’s a few selected photos: [smugmug url=”https://verdugo.smugmug.com/hack/feed.mg?Type=gallery&Data=8800354_vsnxA&format=rss200″ imagecount=”100″ start=”6″ num=”4″]
Well, I finally bit the bullet…I placed my order for D300 body and this badass carbon fiber tripod on Friday: Velbon EL Carmagne 640A Carbon Fiber Tripod Legs Can’t really argue with a tripod that weighs about 3 lbs but can hold up to 25 lbs. w00t! I’ll definitely post up a review after I’ve put each through its paces.
