You want a new camera – but which camera? You want to make the best decision you can. You may turn to some of the popular and large online camera forums to get advice. All you have to do is read through those camera forums to find out how NOT to buy a camera. The things that most of these folks comment on baffle me.

If you read my other Robus Tripod review, you already know that the Robus RC-5570 Vantage Series 3 Carbon Fiber Tripod is my new favorite. But sometime you need TWO tripods – for instance if you want to have a second camera rolling or you want to take the smallest, lightest one you have for one job, and the biggest, heaviest one you have for another.

So I added to the family! The RC-5558 Vantage Series 3 Carbon Fiber Tripod (https://bhpho.to/2Nzobax) is very similar to the larger, 5570. It has the same general build quality, accessories, etc. It has slightly different stats.

While I am certain that the young people of today are comfortable doing EVERYTHING they do on their smart phone (they are probably working on an app that makes babies too!) I am not. I use the phone to do something radical. I use it like a phone. I prefer to do pretty much everything on my computer. And since I prefer using my Olympus cameras to make photos, I put those pictures together on my desktop or laptop Mac.
