Manfrotto 682B Self Standing Monopod Review

I have had the Manfrotto 682B for about a month now. This mono pod is well built and it has a self standing option simply unscrew the bottom and pull out the legs and re screw. I found mixed reviews on this product  and most reviews where people talking about the price and just wanted something to complain about. I love this mono pod, I use this mono pod with the manfrotto 496rc2 ball head , will leave that ball head for another review.  The mono pod will hold my Canon t3i and my 70-200mm IS II L lens with NO problem even if it's extend a bit. With it extended mid way I wouldn't recommend leaving the mono pod left alone.  This product is defiantly worth a buy I would recommend getting a ball head with quick release that can handle your gear.

The mono pod will not replace your tri pod but when your on the go and need something where you normally can't take a tri pod this is a awesome tool.

Photography Backgrounds

I recently picked up a photography background from ebay, I was a bit worried about buying a photography background off of ebay specially since it was coming from China.  I am glad I took the gamble. The background is made out of vinyl and it's pretty thick,  It's a solid sheet so there's no holes to hang it. I am pretty sure the craft store as some metal hole punch that you can get to hang it up without risking tearing the backdrop.  The quality of the picture is not bad it's a bit fuzzy up close but take a few steps back and it looks awesome.  I picked the backdrop up for $34.99 + $9.00 shipping. There's over 60 different backdrops to pick from.

Here's a photo I took with my Iphone 4s of my brick photography background. It looks better the phone don't do much justice. If your interested in finding out where you can pick up some of these backdrops comment below or send me a message

Canon EF 24-70 f/2.8L II Announced

I recently just purchased the Canon 24-70 2.8L. I have mixed feelings about this lens I find it to be a good lens for the most part and some times just not that sharp,  I got excited about the announcement of the version II lens until I saw the price tag. $2,299.00 and NO IS. Not sure what Canon was thinking but I bet the lens will drop in time. I still can't wait to see some image samples and see some product reviews on this lens.
