I have one of the Induro Carbon Fiber tripods.  In the past, I owned a professional Gitzo.  I cannot compare the two because it would not be fair to Gitzo.  The Gitzo was aluminum.  I love this Induro.  I CAN TELL YOU THIS WITH CERTAINTY:  INDURO PRODUCTS ARE AMONG THE FINEST CAMERA SUPPORT PRODUCTS ON THE PLANET.  The build quality and the amount of clever thought and design that went into my Induro tripod tells me that anything they make is TOP shelf…..among the very best.  

The world just does not know it yet!  I am seriously looking at one of their gimbals to support my Nikon 80-400G AFS.

You choose to believe in a god, which there is no evidence of over an animal that has been sighted multiple times, shot, killed, and investigated? Your mind works strangely and it amuses me.

Good demonstration.  Simple, as it should be.  I bought one from Johnny's Seeds online.  

Tried working it on dandilions this AM.   I now see from your demo that I was putting too much work into doing it.   Thanks.

Oh, BTW, these can be sharpened with ease.  I intend to sharpen mine.  

You're right, use the bastard file, but make sure it is still sharp enough to cut (shave fine filings off) the hoe's steel blade.  Otherwise buy a new one.  Bastard files are designed to cut in one direction only, not back and forth.    Sharpen ONE SIDE ONLY of the blade only (the beveled side) and push the bastard file INTO the blade's beveled edge, that way there is no burr.

I bought the D610 and I love it!  It has:  a mirror that is much quieter than the D800(E); a quiet mode that is actually quiet;  a 24 mpx sensor in FX mode and 10  mpx in DX; 6 fps; 18 shot buffer with 14-bit RAWS;  a sensor that is clean out to and through ISO 3200.  I think 24 mpx is the perfect size.

What a great humanitarian story.  It is a story that will end in triumph.  I know.

I am a wildlife biologist.  This whole story is ridiculous and cruel.

This animal is a coyote that has lost all of its hair to the mange.  Here is the reference:  

READ IT………. SO YOU DON'T SOUND SO IGNORANT!!!!!!

I lock the item I am sharpening into a vise. 

I sharpen both edges in the same direction………the direction you show in the beginning, not the direction you show when you flip the knife.  This way there is no burr.

I agree, a sharp bastard file is great for quickly putting on an edge…….because it CUTS shavings from the blade.

I rented and tested the D7100, D800E and D610.

I liked the extra reach of the D7100's 1.3 crop mode, but what killed it for me was its poor performance at higher ISO's…..and somewhat chintzy build.

What eliminated the D800E with me was its very loud and annoying (to me) mirror slap.  It is loud and it adds significant vibration.  Nope; I do not like that at all!  I had my heart set on the D800E until I heard and felt that mirror slap.

Enter the D610!:  very subtle mirror slap, much quieter and softer than the D800(E).    

For me, price was NOT a factor.  I bought the D610 and I love everything about it….except, that Nikon should have made this beauty with a full magnesium alloy  body.  I've been shooting since 1974 (40 years!) and the D610 is a pro class camera…..so where is the full magnesium allow body Nikon?

+DeepSnowRider i love my d800, i took the d800 over 800-e due to the quite big price difference on them in sweden aproximately 600 bucks and the only big difference on them is the anti-aliasing filter which in my mind were a too little difference to make that money worth, i chose to buy an flash, tripod, new bag for the camera and an UV-filter for my lens for that money instead ;)

Rented one from LensRentals and I liked it so much that I bought the camera.   I am thrilled with this D610.  

Clean right up to and thru 3200.  Have not tried 6400.

Seems to me that 24 MPX is ideal.  

The D610's mirror slap is very tolerable.  It has what I would call a quiet shutter, unlike the D800(E) which is very annoying to me, and which causes soft images.  

6 fps is plenty.  BTW, it has a modest buffer of about 15 to 18 14-bit RAWs.  I can work with that.  

love the D610!

I think it is just two guys who operate NT. Almost gave them 5 stars. May change the rating in the future. Here's the short why: 1. There is no hourly rate! I like that. 2. Simple service system: No curve balls or hooks with these two guys. Everything is spelled out simply and quickly: It's $20 for the assessment; i.e. they troubleshoot my machine for $20. So I knew that it was going to cost $20 to learn the complete answer. Straight away I'm ok with that because for just $20 I am going to really know ALL that is wrong with my machine.....NOT AN ESTIMATE. After the assessment I am quickly given A TOTAL REPAIR PRICE........again, not an estimate. Now that is different. I like it. 3. I had viruses that had all but crippled the machine. They killed the viruses, installed a low-consumption defense system and threw in a few treats too. My computer was brought back to new performance standards quickly and for a reasonable rate and one that I knew going into it. 4. AND....from now on I can bring in my ink cartridges and they will refill them for half the price of new cartridges. 5. Location: Right on a section of Forest Avenue that is EASILY approached and that has truly convenient parking options. I liked that. I brought the machine in because it would not even turn on. I thought an electrical storm knocked it out. They found out it was just my power button that had worn out. But once they repaired the button they discovered that the operating system was badly corrupted. Several programs were destroyed or just non-functional (by the viruses). They gave me a standard price and I thought about it for a minute and agreed to it. By 5:30PM the next day I had an all-but-new machine that is now apparently operating at new speed. And to my surprise, that night I was finally able to re-install Nikon's Capture NX2 which I had lived without for the last few years. I'm thrilled with that. At this point I have come to realize that I should have taken this machine to Necessary Technology a long time ago. I will from now on.
