My experience with flash photography in Cyprus

Here in Cyprus I usually get the problem with very harsh light relatively early in the morning. Without fill flash normally 8:30 I have to stop.  Cloudy sky still exist in the spring but not from May to October, there I get Sun pure. With Flash I can also make usable photos in this Time.

Berlebach Pegasus 3-Way Tilt Head - my best choice

Since 2011, I am use the Berlebach Tripod "UNI 22 C" for Photo shootings on I like the move and guess its stability immensely.  As a Tripod Head for the my Canon EOS 1D Mark IV with Canon Lens EF600mm / f4 L IS USM (I) + 1.4x TK (III) or 2x TK(III) I used the popular version of Gimbal Head, Wimberley II, as much other nature photographers.

Satisfied with the own recordings is always rare but when a good friend with the same camera delivers constant more detailed and sharper shots, then must what drape well on the thesis that one fluid Head can reduce the resonance while recording with the expensive Tilter.
