Re: I'm conflicted!

Yes it's the hld-8g without the battery section. It obviously adds the bulk of the hand grip, with the benefit of a working button/dial, but only adds about 1cm to the height of the body. Weight...

Re: Ball head, bit of a different brand

The Dorr one comes with both options as standard, you can rotate the whole head or just the clamp. The benefit of the latter is that you don't need the tripod to be perfectly level, just the clamp...

Re: Ball head, bit of a different brand

That's the tripod and head i've just upgraded from (mines the aluminium version). They served me well for a couple of years and would have continued to do so..... Need and Want are too different...

Ball head, bit of a different brand

I've treated myself to a new set of tripod legs and ballhead.

After looking at a lot of options, I ended up with a less than obvious brand of ballhead. I got a Dörr XB36, it's nice and compact,...

Re: Would you like your fish battered Ma'am?

Thanks Mark, I tried to make sure I included the very bright 'star' to the bottom right, which I believe is actually Jupiter?

Re: Battery suggestions E-M1

I'm looking to buy a spare for my 5mk2, and the Expro's do seem great value.. any thoughts on their standard grey model or the white 'ultra power' with higher mAh rating?
