Shooting with my Manfrotto Tripod
Lens: DA* 60-250 Camera: K-5IIs Photo Location: Home

They say use what you have at hand - didn't feel like setting up a proper shooting bench, so the Manfrotto 475B w/gimbal head proved to be a great alternative.

Thanks for all the comments folks!

I was pleasantly surprised in how well it worked. Now if I could only hold it steady - no SR on the scope!

You wouldn't want to get the gun & camera mixed up at a group photo shoot... it could turn into a massacre.
