A rhododendron just outside of my studio was calling me. It was in full bloom and looking beautiful in the wooded landscape. With an already overwhelming to-do list, my mind said "No time!"
As you may have guessed, "No time!" was the wrong answer. About 6 hours later I walked by the window again and the flowers were completely wilted. The warm sun had finished them off with amazing speed. It will be at least another year until that opportunity returns, and more likely, it will be many years until the equal opportunity arrives as this shrub is seldom as beautiful as it was in the morning.
No, your computer/phone/tablet isn't having trouble loading the image. Instead of a beautiful flowering rhododendron image leading this post, the image is blank. Blank represents what you might get if you do not take your photo opportunities when they present themselves. Don't wait!

SIRUI W Series Waterproof tripods expand the capabilities of outdoor photographers and videographers like no other tripod. While most tripods warn against use in or near water and sand, the W Series welcomes it!
The SIRUI designed WPS Waterproof Sealing System has a series of waterproof rings that prevent water from seeping into the tripod leg tubes and locks and causing damage.
The SIRUI designed waterproof leg locks incorporate waterproof and leak-proof materials used in the automotive industry. The rubber locking components firmly grasp the legs without any gap when they are tightly locked - preventing water, dust or small particles from entering the legs or the locking system. This waterproof (not just water resistant) system lets you safely shoot in extreme environmental conditions (also ideal for use with spotting scopes and binoculars).
Equally impressive is SIRUI’s ability to extend and contract the legs as smoothly as their standard models. And with ½ twist leg locks, setup and break down is fast and easy.
Using the highest quality materials and precisely manufactured leg tubes lets SIRUI achieve uncompromising stability. The SIRUI W-2204 extends up to an impressive 70.9 in. (1800 mm) - vital when shooting in deeper water or to keep your equipment away from splashes and salt spray - while folding down to only 20.5 in. (520 mm). It weighs just 3.7 lb (1.7 kg.), but, holds up to 39.7 lb. (18 kg).
The redesigned Leg Angle Locks make adjustments faster and easier than ever before. Push the lock and it stays open until you select the desired position. Extremely convenient with wet or gloved hands! The slip-resistant rubber feet can be replaced with stainless steel spikes (included) for added grip and stability.
The SIRUI W Series tripod’s unique leg mechanism lets you invert the legs 180° - for compact storage and easy transport. And the split center column makes changing from standard center column to short center column fast and easy.
One of the legs can be converted into a waterproof monopod! Ideal when a tripod is not allowed or when you’re shooting in tight spaces. Attach the center column to increase the height of the monopod.
SIRUI W Series Waterproof tripods are available in economical Aluminum Alloy or Lightweight 10-Layer 100% Carbon Fiber legs.
Waterproof leg design - SIRUI designed waterproof ring system prevents water from seeping into the
pod legs and causing damage. Not just water resistant - actually waterproof!!
Ergonomic Leg Angle Locks make adjustments fast and easy. Extremely convenient with wet or gloved hands!
For speed and convenience, each leg has an automatic leg angle lock mechanism.

The center column can be detached and inverted for low angle or macro shooting.
Legs fold up 180° for extra compactness.

Slip-resistant rubber feet can be replaced with stainless steel spikes (included).
Hook on bottom of the center column can hold a weight bag for added stability
We expect the preorder list to be fairly large for these highly anticipated DSLRs. If you haven't already preordered, now would be a good time to do so if one of Canon's ultra-high resolution cameras is on your wish list.
If you were one of the first to preorder, then your wait is likely coming to and end. :-)
