Still photographers love ball heads.  But for video you will NOT want a ball head!!!  I am not into video, just know that a good video tripod setup can be pretty heavy.  Links for various ideas on tripod selection -

Ball Head vs 3-way Pan/Tilt Head

Kelly Cook created a new topic ' Examples for beginners' in the forum. 19 hours 50 minutes ago

It occurred to me to create a tag "follow along" for entries in my blog that try to show beginners how to move beyond snapshots.  These are not really tutorials, as they don't break things down into formal steps, or say "you must do this".  Linky for these posts, plus a couple of teasers -

Man, that tractor looks a lot like the one my grandfather had in Missouri.  The very first vehicle I ever drove, at about 8 years old.

Depends on the destination.  But this is why I don't bother much with prime lenses.

I haven't seen any charts.  But it would not be any surprise if Sony had the biggest share.  The big box stores love to sell them, and not much else when it comes to mirrorless.

Kelly Cook replied to the topic 'Dedicated Lens Hoods' in the forum. 2 weeks ago

To me "dedicated" would mean that the lens has twist on lugs for the hood, so any dedicated hood uses those lugs.  The more common hoods simply screw into the filter thread.  The nice thing about hoods that use the filter thread is that they can be fitted (more or less) to different lenses.  Not just a single lens.

According to the Wikipedia, the Panasonic G1 came out over a year ahead of the first Sony NEX cameras -

If you are shooting RAW then there is no need to underexpose for color depth.  That trick is really just for JPG shots.

On my monitor the whites could be quite a bit whiter.  Lifting the whites would also help the contrast.
