It'll take a bit to do a write-up and I'm tired right now.  You'll have to wait until later this week!

Oh, and the new clamp worked out quite well for holding the lights while I took pictures.  It opens up wide enough that I can even fit in an old-school D-cell Maglite.  Here it is holding my Wurkkos TD02 during the testing tonight.

I have that exact tripod.  I use it for my Nikon B600
I was pleasantly surprised when I bought it last year.  Fairly inexpensive, but it's got a lot of adjustments, is well-built, and even comes with a really sturdy case/bag.  

My old tripod dates back to the mid-90s and this one is much sturdier, even if it is missing a few features the older one has (levered cam lock for the tripod head plate, crank handle for height adjustment, and a pan handle).  But the greater adjustability (including having a ball head, which the old one lacks), and increased height (I got the 81-inch version, whereas my old tripod is something like 55-inch) make up for it.  I've only used a few times so far and I always forget how nice it is until I get it back out.

I'm a weak, weak person...  Well, there's yet another flashlight on the way.  This one is a Sofirn SC33, which is currently on sale on Amazon.  *sigh*

Oh, and given that this one is 5200 lumen, it only took a week for me to break the 5000 lumen barrier.  And the 4900 lumen Acebeam hasn't even arrived yet!  :D
