Oh, I don't know! I must admit I've used it a time or two myself that way. Thanks for sharing it.
Best, Bill

Hi Paul
Not sure Eric has got it as I notice the centre locking struts are not pushed down all the way and locked on the centre section, this steadies the tripod, so worth doing, hope he gets lots of use, also the centre column raises so he does not have to bend so much.

Regards

Trev.

Interesting set of Photographs, I feel sure looking at these shots, he has a few years left in him to get it right, Paul are you sure these are
not only posed shots, because you could not find anything to take ? Eric.
