Okavango Delta, here we come!
New Item!

Our new FA-QREX2 flash extender is now available. This is a rigid, but lightweight, telescoping extension column that mounts atop our flash brackets to increase the vertical distance between the strobe head and the lens by an additional 6 to 10¼ inches. Great for eliminating "eyeshine" when using fill flash on wildlife.

This extender integrates our new patent-pending strobe/strobe cord quick-release system. If your flash bracket does not have this new strobe QR, buy our adapter set.

Series 3 Leveling Base

Leveling Base for the Really Right Stuff TVC-33 tripod and Gitzo Series 3 Systematic tripods. Remove the top plate from your tripod and replace it with this robust leveling base. Twist the handle to lock & unlock the base. Fluid motion allows smooth and fast leveling, no matter the load. At only 10.5 ounces, this is the lightest leveling base of its class on the market.

Now accepting pre-orders.

from Delkin Devices

Delkin's CombatFlash memory is built to go anywhere you can. . .and then some. All cards are manufactured in the United States where they undergo rigorous testing to ensure the best quality. These memory cards can withstand extreme temperatures, humidity, and altitude to always ensure the security of your pictures.  We offer CombatFlash cards in 3 sizes ranging from 8GB to 32GB, all with a life time warranty.

Joe Johnson-"I've used a variety of memory cards over the years and found Delkin's to be absolutely reliable. Really Right Stuff will carry the top-of-the-line models our customers will appreciate. The Combat line is screamin'-fast and I've bought four of the 32GB cards to take with me to Africa in a couple of weeks along with the four 16GB Pro-3 UDMA Delkin cards I already own. Delkin is a company with similar values to ours and I'm happy to recommend and offer their fine line of cards."

Okavango Delta, here we come!
by Joe Johnson, owner

"In all our jaunts around the world, neither Joan nor I have ever been to Africa. Our whole married life we've wanted to take a photo safari, but time and family never seemed to allow. A year ago we decided to do something special for our 15th anniversary and finally booked a tour with Andy Biggs to see the Okavango Delta in Botswana.

I've always loved preparing for big trips almost as much as taking the trip itself. Anticipation is a fantastic motivator.  But I have to say an inordinately immense amount of planning has gone into this particular trip. I read Thom Hogan's excellent article entitled "The Big Trip" and felt more unprepared than ever.  Because we started early, though, I'm not totally clueless and we're just about ready..."
