At one point. Wynns had over 200 heavy workhorses stabled at its base In Newport, South Wales. Imagine the logistics of feeding them

Optimum Lens Support

We generally attach our camera to a tripod by using the tripod mount at the base of the camera. While this does not pose any problem with lightweight lenses, its a different matter when using heavy lenses; a heavy lens attached to a camera body can cause the lens/body mount to flex and if the lens mount is not strong enough, the weaker section could break, resulting in permanent damage to the lens and/or camera.

По крайней мере события, слухи и новости, связанные с этими фирмами, привлекают одинаково при­стальное внимание игровой об­щественности.

The Falcon Heavy is American company SpaceX’s answer to the heavy-lift conundrum. It currently has a rocket in use called the Falcon 9, which is responsible for taking the Dragon cargo spacecraft to the ISS, but this bigger rocket will enable SpaceX to take larger payloads into orbit and beyond.
