In Topic: Anyone happy with their TriPod?

25 April 2017 - 11:11 AM

I've generally not taken my old tripod setup when I've shot wide (7-14mm On M43), only when I'm shooting macro (60mm) or with my general purpose (12-50mm) lens. I plan to start using my new tripod/quatri-pod setup on every dive now. The telescoping legs are more attractive for this as well..

ScubaBob, can you post a picture of the bottom of your camera/tripod from this TI1976 DIY design? I'm intrigued by this idea...
I did a google search for it and no Luck :( 
 
Thanks,

Akku = battery?

Two dives is pushing it for GX85 - battery life is my only issue with camera. My dives do tend to be long-ish (50-80 minutes) so I have been switching batteries between dives.

I leave LCD on and have been averaging 50 flash fires per dive, approximately 10-15 minutes of recording time.

The xit tripods seem like a great way to go. I almost went that route until I stumbled upon TI1976's DIY design. I replicated that design fairly closely and love the results. 843851624bdf9ad44fd3ee1913b8b1ab.jpg67fe93c78aef8a3563c545a2fe2b896f.jpg
