It’s all finally been put together and seems like it’ll operate great in the field. The gorilla pod gives me the flexibility in providing support in a range of terrains and mounting scenarios. It was for that same reason that I went with the gorilla pod over a standard mounting plate. The pocket wizard plus II gives me good range, more than I’ll need for remotely triggering a camera at least and the giottos mini ballhead gives me the ability to get the camera leveled just how I need it to be. The only thing that I could use is a vertical viewfinder to aid in pre focusing.
