Latest essential bit of kit

band

No, not the camera (or the cat!) it's the elastic band.

Last year I managed to change my tripod to a Vinten 5AS, it's a great tripod and I'm well pleased with it but pans and tilts are always a problem to get smooth, I often shoot something 3, 4 or 5 times to make sure I've got a good pan or tilt.

A good friend sent me a link to a YouTube video asking if I'd ever seen it, I hadn't and after watching it I didn't believe how simple it was and couldn't wait to try it out.

Just recently I've had the chance to try it several times and I can't believe the results I'm getting - if you haven't seen the technique try it and see how your pans / tilts suddenly improve dramatically.
