Check out the holiday sales on Sachtler aktiv Video Fluid Head and Tripod Systems at B&H.

I purchased the Sachtler aktiv10 flowtech 100 MS Tripod System immediately when it went on sale ($818.76 instant savings). It is in my studio awaiting a full review, but I've used it enough to know that it is an outstanding setup.

Many other Sachtler tripods, heads and accessories are also on sale.

One of my jobs is to make sure that this site, a free resource that hopefully has value to you, remains sufficiently funded. The costs, in both time and money, of maintaining and developing this site are substantial, and it seems ever-more-challenging to meet those needs.

Basically, there are five ways you can help support us. The first on the list below is my favorite because it costs you nothing additional. Likely, you will be shopping over the next few weeks, and starting your shopping using the links on this site makes a big difference.

Hopefully, you can use at least two or three of these options regularly:

  1. Use the Retailer Links on this Site for Your Purchase of Anything (start your Christmas shopping here)
  2. Direct Support 
  3. Link to the Site
  4. Disable Ad Blockers
  5. Tell Others

The support page clarifies the above options.

I am grateful for your support and look forward to serving you long into the future!

The big super-telephoto lenses deliver the ultimate wildlife image quality. The Canon RF 600mm F4 L IS USM Lens and Sony FE 600mm F4 GM OSS Lens are my favorite wildlife lenses, and they are my easy first choices for photographing elk.

However, there are times when wider would be helpful — a wider focal length and a wider aperture. In those cases, the Canon RF 400mm F2.8 L IS USM Lens and Sony FE 400mm F2.8 GM OSS Lens become my first choices. Unfortunately, flying with and managing two big lenses in the field is challenging.

This year, I opted to take on that challenge, taking a lens from each class to Rocky Mountain National Park.

The Pelican 1615 Air Wheeled Hard Case was the primary solution to the mentioned challenge. When flying, the camera bodies were unmounted, the big lens hoods were reversed, pads were added, and additional lenses were included in the case — up to the airline-checked bag weight limit. The case was locked and checked.

In the field, the configuration shown below worked great. With the Robus monopods removed, the Pelican case closed, enabling easy and safe transport to and from my room.

Pelican 1615 Air Wheeled Hard Case Loaded

As pictured, both lenses in their LensCoat covers were immediately available for roadside opportunities or for the long stalk.

This bull elk, fresh out of the wallow, was proud of his muddy (and smelly) coat and looking for cows. When photographing wildlife, predicting behavior correctly delivers the ultimate shots, and I guessed this one right.

Seeing the relatively short working distance available for the potential water crossing, the Canon RF 400mm F2.8 L IS USM Lens got the call. This lens's angle of view was just wide enough to fit the elk in the frame, and the f/2.8 aperture strongly blurred the background, which is not easy to do while fitting a large elk in the frame.


A larger version of this image is available here.
