New Tripod
I finally bought a new tripod today replacing the cheap (and busted!) tripod that I've put up with for the last six months.
I bought a Velbon Sherpa 600R with PH157Q head - $150 at TEDS.
Sure I love to be able to afford a manfrotto but I cant justify spending twice as much. I compared the Sherpa with a $350 Manfrotto and I couldnt feel or see much difference! The Sherpa feels rock solid even at its maximum height.

I took a series of photos of my daughter's set up 'tea party' to get used to the new tripod.

Combined and edited with CS2.
Canon 50D.
Love the PS work - looks like the tripod is going to get a good work out.
Canon stuff.
Brilliant idea with the picture!
