How odd that both Sue and I received packages on the same day when both of us go for long periods without receiving any parcels.
Sue's parcel is the one at the back. It contained two large winter boots.
My only slightly smaller package is the one at the front. It contained the single very small purchase that I propped on the top for the photo. Even the inner box was large for the contents; you can see the space for the two, even smaller parts. It's good to send electronics securely, but my goodness!
Sue told the story of her boots here. Columbia Sportswear certainly came through for her.
Some of you may wish to know what the heck my Giga T Pro II is all about.
It's a remote control plus timer for my camera. One piece sits on top on the hotshoe (flash holder). The other piece I hold in my hand both to set the mode and to spring the shutter. Both pieces are shown below. And that's all that came in that huge box, along with the wire that you see and a slim manual.
When I set my camera on a tripod for low light shots, as I do very occasionally, I like to click the shutter remotely rather than jiggle the camera. It makes for a sharper photo.
It's also handy to have a timer. My camera can only give me a timed thirty seconds. I have found myself trying to count seconds out loud a few times when I want to go above thirty seconds, and this timer will do that ... and more ... such as setting a certain numer of shots and the duration in between frames and so on ...
I had a cheapie remote/timer that was hard to use and that didn't last.long anyway. Hopefully, this will fill a need for quite some time.
