Ever since I bought my tripod I’ve been in love. ♥
My husband thinks I’m in love with Canon but really it’s a toss up between Canon and Gitzo. Or maybe it’s Really Right Stuff that has my heart.
At first I wasn’t sure about spending so much money on it. I think it was around $1,000 by the time I bought the legs, the ball head, the clamp and the L bracket. But it is sooooo worth it.
The thing weighs practically nothing!
Even though I knew how much it meant to me, I don’t think I quite understood how deep the feeling was … until I broke the Really Right Stuff ballhead 🙁
It was so sad the way the lever just kept turning and turning without tightening up to hold my camera steady.
And wouldn’t you know it, that evening was the best of all the sunsets I saw in Nevada’s stunning Valley of Fire.
All I could do was dry my tears and crank up my ISO to make the best of it.
I made each of these shots hand-held. Please click any of the images to view larger versions.
I really have to hand it to Really Right Stuff. The part was 3 years old and it was still covered by their warranty. Not only did they fix it free of charge, but they shipped me a loaner part that was in my hands 48 hours later. Thank you Really Right Stuff!!
