I have WulfPro (now called Natx) K9.
I talked to the manufacturer (me and another 560 owner) and we got one extra partition.
I placed the 560 diagonally. The bag slightly looks skewed. But the advantage is I can carry other gear too (2 bodies, FA300, 1.4x TC and one binoculars).
And we can carry it in the aircraft cabin without anyone objecting :-)

Is there a replacement foot for DA560?
Posted By siva.ss.kumar

Views: 561
I (and other friends who have DA560) feel that the tripod foot of the DA560 is not properly centered and doesn't balance nicely when carried or even mounted on a tripod.
The center of gravity is slight behind the foot and it needs a longer plate to balance it on tripods.
So, question is are there any replacement foot (like for other lenses) that can potentially taken care of this issue?
Instead of right angle foot we see now, the replacement can be at an angle (like the FA600).
Any one attempted a DIY for this ? Thanks

You can buy an used one (560). That way you may not pay the full price and know that it won't break in half when picking up :-)

Yes. Pentax like base curve is turned on by default.
Another of my friend also felt the difference. So we are planning to downgrade the DT to 2.x

The DCU and also RawTherapee is showing the colours as close to the JPEG. Only with DT 3.0, I am seeing this newly

This is about darktable 3.0.
With this release, I see my raw files (both PEF/DNG) with colours washed out. I had to increase the saturation a lot to get to the image of in camera JPEG (used RAW+ shooting to compare)
I didn't have this problem with darktable 2.x version.
Any one else have this issue? Should I file a bug in DT?

When he says 'Wolf boy', does he refer to the 'boy who cried wolf' story? So, the wolf is going to really appear suddenly :-)

As an owner of 560, I think I know your mod. I too have thought about how to do it myself. The way it is currently, it is not over the COG. Adding a heavier camera means even more difficulty to mount on heads.
I am talking about the lens mount foot. You have reversed it. I am using a longer plate so that the mount point is behind the tip of the foot.
I wish Ricoh gives an optional tripod foot that is reversed.
