Subject: [Leica] Light tripods and electronic first curtain

 I had the chance to see, first hand, the tripod Paul Roarke uses. It is not 
only light, it is also a tripod that I would not normally use with a "good" 
camera.   The reason it works for Paul, who uses it with the column fully 
raised (Paul is over 6 feet tall. The tripod legs go up only about 4 feet. 
Paul would have a sore back ...except) 
Paul uses a pad for under his knee if he needs to kneel in use.  But what 
really makes this work for Paul is that his camera, a Sony A7rII, has an 
electronic first shutter and image stabilization built into the body. Paul 
sets up the camera with the built in self timer. After he hits the button, 
the next mechanical part that moves, and thus creates any vibration , after 
the exposure is done.  No vibration Because of  shutter movement and first 
shutter curtain is introduced by the camera. 

Yet another reason that in body image stabilization and EVF cameras are 
really good tools.
