Well, I had to get a different support for my camera because the Manfrotto tripods couldn't hold up. I also scratched the tablet viewfinder idea because the camera only operates in auto mode (the camera is completely locked out), and I've learnt how to use enhanced functions without the camera; like the histogram. I keep the tablet in my camera bag in case I need to consult a photography ebook I own, or need to look online for information about composing a particular shot etc.
I'll get around to posting a picture of my new setup, but in the meantime, here's some pictures I took yesterday at a local park. It's the first time I've used my circular polarizer and ND filter.
The only reasonable argument for owning a gun is to protect yourself from the police.
