Nice shots. Makes me wish I could be an explosion.

Yes, very good, Chris.

Charles, we certainly can count on you for a unique viewpoint.

Cool shots, Chris. The third one is my favorite. It resembles a squid.

Thanks for the compliments everyone. smile My favorite would be the tenth, with the fountain of gold sparks with the trees in silhouette.

very nice pics of the fireworks. I feel like the camera I bought was my 2nd best investment, right after the speakers. While not quite in the same league as some of the equipment mentioned above I love be D90 and rarely need anything past my little 35mm f1.8 lens. After my son was born I wanted to be able to take indoor pictures of him without the use of flash. The camera and little lens certainly allowed me to do exactly that.

Just bought a Sony RX10, along with a Manfrotto Magic Arm and Super Clamp (shown in this brief promotional video).

I was going to purchase either the Canon 70d or Nikon D5300 but decided not to because I know I would have great difficulty manually zooming a DSLR seeing as I don't have the use of my hands.

I wasn't keen on getting a fixed lense camera, but I watched and read many reviews on the RX10, and they're all very positive. As an added bonus, I can control the camera (zoom, activate the shutter etc.) from a wireless device like a cell or tablet.

Here's how I'm going to rig it up to my chair -

Hopefully it works out!

That's an awesome looking camera. It's amazing how far the lenses have advanced since my Pentax Spotmatic II was new.

The arm looks ideal, but I can't help thinking that some kind of safety rope for the camera might be a good idea (I don't trust clamps ;)).

I've seen him drive. Forget clamps, it should have come with roll bars!

I just bought the new Samsung Galaxy Tab S to control my camera via the Sony Playmemories app. I can zoom in/out, activate the shutter and look at my pictures via the tablet. It's nice having a 10.5" viewfinder grin. The reviews for this camera spoke highly of the image quality, and they're spot on; the quality is just phenomenal.

Now I just need one of these Tab Grabbers and I should be all set.
