Gitzo systematic ocean tripods

In this video, Matt Granger from PhotoNewsReviews/ThatNikonGuy does a hands-on review of the Gitzo systematic ocean tripods. These premium all-weather tripods are very amazing and the larger models can support quite a large load of weight, with the travel tripod supporting a modest 4kg, which is plenty for most camera/lens combos, except the super-telephotos. The only ick factor is the price tag, which is way out of my league.

Nikon D5200 hands on review (vs D5100)

In this video, Matt Granger from PhotoNewsReviews/ThatNikonGuy does a hands-on review of the Nikon D5200 DSLR camera, and compares it to the Nikon D5100.
