5.0 out of 5 stars My spinal disks are thrilled, June 29, 2016
After years of sitting at a desk and pounding code, my lower back took a hit. It has become increasingly impossible to sit so something had to change. My profession or my habits. So I opted to change my habits. I researched various "stand up desks" including the Varidesk and came across this desk. I like the fact the desk surface isn't split into two levels like the Varidesk and others like it. It holds two laptops with two 21" monitors, one laptop is used with its monitor (so three monitors are going at once ), two full size IBM keyboards (yes the beasts from the past), a desk phone and more. I stand 90% of the time working away and my back is no longer screaming from pain. The desk is easily adjusted up and down with a crank that can be placed on either side. I assembled the desk myself and only required assistance to flip it right side up. Probably a person taller than I could handle flipping it right side up by themselves. This is a substantial desk - not cheesy. The desk is quite strong and easy to assemble. It arrived in three boxes which were easy to handle alone. Love the locking wheels and also the fact it wasn't obscenely expensive. Highly recommended.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not designed for a real camera and speedlight. Maybe a Barbie camera would work, June 28, 2016
I bought this to use with a D810 and SB-910 flash. Superficially it fit both camera and flash, along with a 24-70 mm lens. However, that's where the 'fit' ends. The connectors are cheesy. The foam grip is comfortable (the one star rating was earned because of it). The frame buckles when turned to portrait mode. Pinched clothing and fingers are a given. Twice the flash came off, dangling from the the cord (which works well). The third time the speedlight detached from the cord and bounced on the ground. This after vigilantly checking connections throughout the day. Luckily the speedlight wasn't damaged. The sickening feeling of watching it bounce on the ground still lingers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice case for big glass, March 4, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I bought this for my Nikkor 200-500mm lens. It fits well, albeit without the lens hood. The strap is rather cheesy and I plan on replacing it but overall a very nice case. Nicely padded and constructed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Got big rigs? You need this, March 4, 2016
I have a couple of big lenses. A Nikkor 80-400mm and a Nikkor 200-500mm. Either of these paired with a full frame camera (mine is a D810) and you can toss the gym weights. Don’t get me wrong, you can shoot these lenses handheld well but for night and/or landscape photography you quickly discover that a sturdy tripod is a must. The Manfrotto 393 is simple, elegant and designed to bear a hefty weight. I considered several other heads, including ball and gimbal designs. I already have a ball head, I didn’t want another and gimbal heads, although would serve the purpose well, were too pricey for me. This head is a complementary beast to my lenses, strong and super smooth in operation. Where you point it. there it stays. No drifting, no nose dive, nothing. I paired it with a Benro A2580F Classic tripod. I also liked the fact that it came with the quick release plate. What a concept – I didn’t have to buy it separately like I had to with my Acratech. I have lost the anxiety I had when using my big rig on lesser heads. Highly recommended. If I could give it more than 5 stars I gladly would.

4.0 out of 5 stars I love it and use it with a huge power pack ..., January 14, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Fits perfectly, works well. It may have a mechanism to protect for overload from a power pack but I am not sure so that is why I gave it four stars. Other than that, I love it and use it with a huge power pack (23000mHa) on its 9V output. Great item for power sucking long exposures and all day treks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Camera Juice, January 9, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Big beast. At 23000mAh it couldn't be a dainty thing but I love it. I use it to power my Nikon camera. Night shooting eats batteries. Nothing sucks more than your battery running out of juice during a long exposure. I enjoy night photography I think more than I enjoy day photography. Night photography presents obstacles that you don't consider during the sun drenched hours.

Once you dip your toes into night photography, the thirst for capturing the elusive night light consumes you. This quest has rich rewards but it has its frustrations - mainly the hunger your camera has for power. The camera basically eats the batteries and spits them out faster than you can say howdy. This is primarily due to the long exposures the poor nocturnal light requires and the fact that live view is the handiest way to set the ISO, f stop, exposure and also frame the shot. I have 5 batteries for my camera that are fully charged and ready for a night shoot. They last several hours but it stinks when you are on a roll and your camera doesn't fire because it sucked the power dry. Time lapse photography intensifies this hunger for power. Add cold night temperatures to this mix and the battery dies even faster.

I have been on hunt for an alternative way to feed my camera during its hungriest times. Batteries with higher mAh didn't cut it. Using A/C power isn't feasible unless I am shooting from home and can stretch out an extension cord.

Enter this baby. It's a beast, roughly the size of a tablet. I place this in a pouch and hang it on my tripod. The lovely purple Crown Royal pouch is just the right size for the job.

I use a Lanparte EL15P-01 E15 Battery Adapter (Black) that I connect to the power bank. It is critical to set the power bank at the proper voltage or you will damage the camera. Make that fry your camera. This has a variable DC output. I set the power bank to 9 Volts which works for my Nikon. I always verify the voltage on the power bank's LED before I plug it in the camera. Last week I shot close to 300 shots in raw. The camera was never shut off in the three solid hours of shooting long exposures and constant live view and it was a very cold night. The power bank had a 90% charge at the onset of shooting and had 73% at the end. The added perk of this thing is that it can charge my phone while feeding my camera at the same time. It's a relief not to worry about swapping batteries. I can fully focus on the capturing the perfect light.

Oh yeah, I LOVE this thing.
