  1. I use the Sigma 150-600 Sport, so I leave it ever so slightly back heavy at 150 so that when I zoom in on my subject it doesn't suddenly become front heavy. This is the most sensible, grounded, video I've seen on using a ,long lens.

  2. Oh the times I have toiled over one of those heads! Great for birds and mammals, but how do you go one when you're out and you decide to shoot macro, or a landscape, which I do a lot of…This is the bit that puts me off them! I find the big ball and socket a great all rounder but it is a bit wobbly when coupled with the 500mm.
