Just a quick update!
I have now recieved the Sigma Lens and the Agnos MrotatorUT along with the twin hot shoe bubble, but Smooth was spot on about the tripod . . . . . . the setup is way too heavy for a cheap one!
I am now looking at various more sturdy tripods from Manfrotto and hopefully will decide on one soon so we can start to actually do something. I have seen them in local shops but none of them do a very good deal so shopping around at the moment.
If anyone else has any other recommendations for one or for a good online supplier in Australia that would be good too.
Anyways, hopefully we will have something to show soon!
