Zenelli Gen III … Heaven!

Having a Zenelli Gen I for years and loving it, I found it hard to believe when they told me that they improved it. Now shooting with the Gen III, I can tell you they aren’t kiddin, they improved an already great head. The weight difference is staggering!!! The new lever plate is outstanding. But it’s the stability the entire package brings to the big lens that still amazes me. Here are the stats I think are important. New Features Weight 0.90 Kg, 1.99 lb Ergonomic Tilt knob, Soft Touch in Magnesium Balance Lever with recovery position Save Lock Lever, more ergonomic 20% more vibration absorption Two bearings Tilt Carbon Graphite Two bearings Pan Best Carbon Fiber Position What you see below is the new lever locking plate. It’s vastly improved, really secure and easy to use. It’s the most visible of all the great new features. Check it...

Klean Kanteen

While we’ve received 510″ of snow this winter (that’s right 42′), ya still need to drink water. Tired of plastic water bottles, both one use and refillable, I was thinking of going metal like I see so many doing. While clicking around on the B&H site (we all do that) I saw they had the 20oz Klean Kanteen with the B&H logo. I stuck it in my shopping cart and glad I did. Works for hot or cold fluids, easy to clean and flashes my favorite stores name. I tell ya, cruising the B&H site can get one in real...

What’s Your Next Lens?

No, I’m not takin a survey but rather, answering a common question. Deciding what should be your next camera lens purchase can be a real sleep turner, hand wrenching decision. The reason is usually two fold, money and desire. Being photographers, we tend to desire a lens we can’t afford. That’s what makes us … us! Once you move past that near fatal photographer condition comes the reality of, we need to build our camera bag, but what lens to buy next? The first question I recommend folks ask themselves in this quest is, do you find yourself backing up or moving closer when you’re shooting (zooming with your feet)? If you back up, you need a wider lens and if moving closer, you need longer lens. Now narrowing it down from that takes honest soul searching. Ideally, you try out the lens you think you want to buy first. Perhaps you have a friend who owns the lens you want to buy or, you go on a photographic...

When Your Gear Gets Wet

As I watched the rain come down yesterday (we received 11.1″ of rain at the time of this post on top of our 6′ snowpack) it occurred to me it was time to talk about how I shoot in the rain. To start with, my rule of thumb is, if I can stand the rain, so can my gear. With that said, I personally don’t cover my gear with a cover or bag. Now if it’s pouring so hard I can’t stand it but I have to be in it, then I would cover my gear. The key is once your gear is wet, never WIPE your gear dry, always BLOT it dry! Wiping forces the moisture into crevices where it shouldn’t go and will cause damage. Blotting your gear dry with a dry white towel wicks up the moisture safely. Knock on wood, but this very KISS method is what I’ve used for forty years and I’ve never had any gear go down. Thought I would simply pass...
