Manchester 12 May

Post by Paul Zietsman » Wed Jun 13, 2018 9:51 am

I popped up to Manchester at the break of day yesterday and spent about four hours southside on the mound. I was surprised to be the only one there, so at least I had the choice of where I set myself up. Although I have owned a tripod for many years, I mostly shoot hand held. However, as I am slowly getting into video, I decided to use my tripod for both video and stills yesterday. There was a steep learning curve when it came to using my MVH500 head as it was difficult to get a smooth panning action. I was glad that there was nobody there to take offence while I swore at myself on a regular basis. I tried some video with my Panasonic but nothing was worth keeping so I concentrated on my stills.

The titles will give the details of each image - sorry so many of them....

Thanks Jon. The cursing led me to the internet to find a cure for the jittery panning. The cure seems to be to use an elastic band to pull the handle on the fluid head. I have tried it at home and it looks promising. Will nip back to Manchester to try it in the next few days.

Mike,

Thanks. Using the tripod gave me a much better success rate than I normally get - should have used it long before now!

Paul
