…at the castle. Yes, it was very cold today in Durham. And the Sony NEX-5, with the Tamron SP 90/2.5 and the Manfrotto 709B, spotted it very well.
This Manfrotto is fantastic. I am not someone who carries heavy stuff with him (why would otherwise use a NEX?), and in fact I can leave this sturdy metallic tripod attached under the camera hanging at my neck. Placing the tripod on the ground, when it is needed, is not trouble thanks to the swinging display of the NEX.
