Tripods

I see from some of your great pics you guys use tripods with what looks like a front bag rest attached for your long shots.

How do you attach the rest to the bit where the camera usually sits??

I'm probably being dumb and its real simple I just cant figure it out.

Thanks guys

Hesketh, I am guessing you are referring to a long lens which is attached to the tripod with a "foot" on the bottom of the lens.

Then the camera sits out on the rear end, unsupported.

Len sorry I am not.

If you go to the "New Zealand Alpine Game Animals At Long Range" thread and look at the pictures they are setting up on tripods to take the shot.

What I want to know is how do the attached the front rest bags to the tripod???

Thanks

I am not sure what they have the actual bag mounted to, but most of these type tri pods have a 1/4 -20 type thumb screw to which the camera is mounted. Some also have a 1/4-20 x 3/8-16 adaptor for some of the bigger cameras. I am sure that you could simply drill and tap a piece of aluminum or mild steel to which your owl ear bag could then be mounted on.

Hope this helps.

I would imagine that you could just put a 1/4 x 20 "T" nut through a flat piece of wood that you have designed to support your front bag. That way you could easily take the bag on or off your camera tri-pod.

That is, if I understand your question correctly.
