Testimonials
I had a lot of questions about adding accessories to my tripod and long lens.This is the only site that gave me personal attention and advice. They were more than happy to assist me in all my needs, from gimbals mounts to flash attachments. All the accessories that I purchased were right on and fit perfect and their prices are better then any other site that I visited. I highly recommend this site for all your photo needs. The people here and it's owner are fantastic. Thank you very much for all your help. Harry Meares Jr.

Ed about  LensCoat Gimbal Pouch:
October 24, 2014
The LensCoat Gimbal Pouch is nicely padded and has a draw string that closes the pouch securely and easy to open. The Wimberley Gimbal head just fits. At first it was difficult trying to get the gimbal head in the pouch. It seams there is only one way that it will fit and that is tight.

Advantages: Nice storage place for the gimbal head. Padded. Choice of solid color or camo.

Disadvantages: A little tight getting the head in the pouch.
Ed about  Wimberley Head II:
October 24, 2014
Wimberley makes a high quality product. They are committed to their work and are located in Virginia. The Wimberley head II is easy to set up and does a great job with large telephoto lenses.

Advantages: Sturdy, well constructed, easy to setup and use
Chris Hugosson about  Wimberley C-12 Quick Release Clamp:
October 22, 2014
I want to standardize on arca-swiss (AS) plates but few video heads use that standard. Hence I needed this clamp to convert one of Gitzo's plates to AS. This solution works well enough.

Advantages: With the three extra tightening screws, very secure on a QR plate.

Sturdy and nice, large knob.

Disadvantages: Requires many turns to tighten or loosen.

For my use case, there is a small penalty in weight and height.
Al Lipsey about  Essential Photo Gear Leg Armor:
October 20, 2014
Absolutely love this product. No more picking brush junk out of your socks and jeans and the knee pads are a blessing on these old knees. Great product.

Advantages: A blessing in disguise.

Disadvantages: None
Harry about  Apex Mini Beanbag:
October 1, 2014
Very functional and performed as advertised. A less expensive 'bean bag" would work if you only use the bag. If you are mounting support for a large lens, then this is a very good idea. (Gimbal with 400mm)
September 29, 2014
Best small fold up chairs. Amazing with the back support. Took less than 2 weeks for delivery all the way to Australia. Thank you for prompt dispatch.

Advantages: Prompt service.
Great product with back support.

Disadvantages: Delivery costs to Australia.
marcel deray about  NEOS Adventurer Overshoes:
September 17, 2014
The shoes should close better at the top, very clumsy system. Would have made them a little taller also

Advantages: probably waterproof

Disadvantages: as above
Richard Duvall about  NEOS Adventurer Overshoes:
September 17, 2014
First of all, you can stop price shopping. You won't find a better price (at least for this model) anywhere. Shipping was fast and free and a special offer at the time I purchased these allowed me to get a pair of insoles at no additional cost. Read and understand the size chart and you won't be disappointed by getting the wrong size.
So far they look like a good product - better than any other option I have tried in over 50 years of outdoor work and recreation.

Advantages: I haven't had a chance to use these yet in wet weather so I can't comment on much except appearance so far.
1. lightweight for an overshoe
2. appear very durable
3. adequate sole tread without looking like it would pick up a lot of mud.
4. fit well over the shoes I intend to wear


Disadvantages: 1. The material, while durable looking, is not real stiff in the uppers. The top hits me right at mid-calf and I fear that there may not be enough stiffness to keep the uppers from slipping down. A boot that extended past my calf may stay up better. Too tall I guess. This may not turn out to be a problem - haven't had opportunity to use them yet.
2. The strap and buckle that cinches the boot tight at the ankle doesn't have a good means to hold it tight. The buckle doesn't cinch tight to the strap and the velcro to hold the strap down doesn't extend far enough to keep the strap tight. I fixed this by using contact cement to extend the velcro on the boot. (Hope they don't leak - I won't be able to send them back :)

Richard Duvall about  NEOS Insole Replacement:
September 17, 2014
Can't comment on the insulation qualities yet but they are good to use when you want to change from one style of shoe to another. Without the insole in place my NEOS fit over my winter boots or hiking shoes. With the insole in place the overshoes fit well with my running shoes and other casual shoes.
September 16, 2014
Great resource and time saver for anyone looking for fall colors in Colorado. He's done all the work except hold your camera and take the picture for you!
September 7, 2014
Works very well with my Canon EX430ll / SIGMA 150-500.
I ordered a Camo Lens Coat Beamer Keeper to keep the parts together and also an extra lens.

Advantages: Simple, light, easy to set up and use.



Disadvantages: No complaints
September 3, 2014
got one for my Canon EF 300mm f2.8L IS fit is tight and snug ,But after short time it pop's itself out starting from the top

Advantages: easy fit and to carry

Disadvantages: bulge in the middle when its annoying and can slip of on its own
August 30, 2014
Very dangerous gadget, at the third time I used it set on fire destroying the whole batteries that were charging, also heard it happens the same to somebody else. I wouldn’t recommend it.

Advantages: Non

Disadvantages: Set on fire
August 29, 2014
The price is extremely reasonable in light of how extensive the keywords are. I'm glad because I found shortcomings.

Advantages: Coverage in Latin names for birds, mammals and plants is extensive and world-wide.

Disadvantages: There are far more keywords here than I need so it is not feasible for me to export the whole file into my Bridge keyword list which would lengthen it so long that it would be very time-consuming to check through it-- which I do for each of my images. So I decided to choose only the keywords I would use and copy them to my keywords in Bridge. That turned out to be one keyword "aves" that I needed to add to my own keywords. I can easily get the current Latin name of a particular subject from the internet. Latin names do change, so a current name is important as well as the old name.

Also, animal and plant names are listed as singular. All keywords should be plural (or both singular and plural if not just an added "s") so a search can find either singulars or plurals.
Ron Huelse about  Induro 534-CM34 Carbon CM Monopod:
August 29, 2014
The carbon monopod is great-light weight and easy to store-I would recommend this monopod to anyone serious about taking photos and wishing his equipment could be lighter to carry

Advantages: light weight and easy to break down and store

Disadvantages: THERE ARE NO DISADVANTAGES
August 25, 2014
I love the strength and how compact the momopod is

Advantages: Easy for working with two long lensesEach with their own monopod

Disadvantages: none
August 19, 2014
Just ok. Was really hoping for more. They manufacturer boasts that the legging will not fall below the knee. I seriously doubt that will hold in a field test. Also, all this camo to provide concealment and the fastener is a nice light reflecting metal...hmmm.

Advantages: None

Disadvantages: As above
August 18, 2014
Great everything as promised and quickly shipped.
Jim Fernandez about  Gitzo Tripod Shoulder Strap:
August 14, 2014
I bought this strap to use with my Gitzo Systematic series 5. No center column , It loops through the hole under the spider on one end and bundles the legs on the the other. It's a nicely made strap and affords security from dropping while carrying.

Advantages: Well made, security from slipping out of your hands.

Disadvantages: I carry my tripod with a gimbal head attached and that makes it out of balance so the tripod legs face upward when I carry.
August 7, 2014
A great product, reasonably priced.
Graham Morgan about  Gura Gear Bataflae Backpack 32L:
July 22, 2014
The bag is fine as was the last one. I have bought a new bag, not because the last one wore out , it didn't. The zipper teeth remained sound, however the coating on the zipper body eventually deteriorated and the body corroded. No matter how often and meticulously I serviced it. The corroding zipper body continued to deposit filagree on the teeth which would cause the zipper to let me down in the field.

Advantages: O.K having said that I had this older Kiboko (bought from you) for many years and it had a tough life with plenty of polar, african and sea travel. A pity the zipper body was corroding as the bag remains in excellent condition. Soif you have some advice as to how to make the old bag reliable again please let me know.
Greg about  APEX Beanbag:
July 22, 2014
Well made. I wish they had better instructions on filling with various materials. I started with rice and to fill it completely you need about 17 lbs. This is pretty heavy so I think beans would be lighter so now I have to experiment with a load of beans! What do I do with 17 lbs of rice?

Advantages: Well made, aluminium plate is sturdy and stable

Disadvantages: How much weight does each substance weight when completely full? Better instructions...
Don North about  NEOS Trekker Overshoe:
July 15, 2014
I wore the Neos on a recent trip on the inland passageway in Alaska. The boots worked very well in shallow water (getting in and out of zodiacs). They worked less well in short hikes on shore because they are not made to absorb the punishment of brambles and sticks.
Frances Lowe about  Walkstool Comfort:
July 2, 2014
I am elderly and cannot walk far, especially uphill. I bought the walkstool for a rip to Scotland with my daughter -- she carried it in her backpack. City and country, I could set it up and rest when I needed to, which was pretty often. I got the smallest (18) size as I am short.

Advantages: Reasonably lightweight, opens and closes easily and quickly, sturdy on uneven surfaces. Fits in backpack or carry over shoulder. Did not always use the carrier, as it made it more awkward to get out. Sit down carefully and it is very stable. Fits in my suitcase.

Disadvantages: none
Steve Kaye about  NSN CLF-456 Lens Replacement Foot:
June 30, 2014
Fast and easy. Excellent experience.

Advantages: Great product

Disadvantages: None
Steve T. about  NEOS River Trekker:
June 30, 2014
Nice hip boots as these go over your existing shoes. The tread really grabbed well on slippery terrain.

Advantages: You can wear your regular shoes, sneakers, hiking boots, etc.

Disadvantages: None noted.
Paul Lazenby about  Think Tank Photo Glass Limo:
June 15, 2014
I bought this bag for a canon 5d3 plust a 300 - 2.8 lens

Advantages: Nice size - looks well made - time will tell.

Disadvantages: No cradle supports for the lens - cannot be used safely with only the bottom padded locating ring in the bottom of the case - the lens and camera attached wobble about far to much - I cannoy believe the claims made by Think Tank - I am now designing a cradle to secure the top of the lens and camera - I'm not a happy bunny !!!!
June 13, 2014
Awesome lenes but very poor quality case. I have had 3 cases since April because of poor design. They break easily. The thread on the handle comes loose and the cases is not stable

Advantages: Excellent lenes. I have 4 and all are great quality. However they become useless without a good case to mount them on.

Disadvantages: The case and combo handle do not last very long. Cheap thread mounts and weak plastic case.
June 11, 2014
A bit of a challenge to get it connected.

Advantages: Great for larger cameras with medium to larger lenses.

Disadvantages: Difficult to assemble on camera.
Sandy about  LensPen Lens Cleaner:
June 7, 2014
Always a winning tool to have in your camera pack!

Advantages: Small and packable.

Disadvantages: None that I can state.
