    Hi everyone,

    Been a while since I posted in this forum. I was browsing kickstarter and saw this kind of cool item. I have a tripod myself and really don't use it that often - maybe few times a year. Is funny cause I have the same tripod as the picture below. Rest of the time it just sits at home. This seems like a neat idea to use it as a light stand. Just thought I would share this if anyone else is interested. I'm not associated with them in anyway.

    Here is the link to their campaign.

    This is nothing new. I'd seen and actually made one of these myself several years ago. They didn't Google the concept. Plus I don't like the fact they are defacing the Nikkormat - a Kodak yes . . . but please not a Nikkormat. :)
