comment How to back up .NEF files to cloud in a simple and affordable way?
I had a great experience with CrashPlan so far. I use their software to backup to an external drive (free) and also to backup to the Cloud (paid). At less then $3/month with the 4 year plan, it's a steal for unlimited Cloud storage (currently I have 200GB). If you don't want to pay for Cloud storage, you can do peer-to-peer backups for free. I also like the iOS app, you can download photos and files to your iPad. I once forgot to copy a document to my laptop, so I just downloaded it to my iPhone and emailed me back at work.

Uber Doh! moment: I just realized that I can unscrew the center column of my Fotopro MGA-584N tripod into 2 sections! The result is that only the top section of the center column stays in and I can get the tripod very low. Feel kinda stupid however, thanks for all the answers and comments because I now understand the benefits of tripods with adjustable center columns. Thanks everyone!

Interesting. I saw this tripod at a store but the salesperson failed to demonstrate its capabilities correctly. She recommended the Manfrotto 190XB because you can simply remove the center column. I can now see the advantage of models like the 055XPROB.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for taking the time to write this answer and for letting me see the problem from an artistic point of view instead of the technical point of view. It's appreciated.
