Markins M10 ball head with Arca-Swiss quick release

Really Right Stuff Arca-Swiss camera bracket
22
Tripod level - I didn't think this was necessary until I did a bunch of pan's in a row in different locations. This in combo with the camera level below (or the level built into the D800) gives the proper orientation so Photoshop can stitch easily. $20
23
3 way bubble level that sits in the flash mount, or not - $11 shipped
24
3Sixty Peace River Panorama Head with multi-row adapter - Panoramic image assistant - Photoshop CC auto stitching makes this very expensive piece of equipment unnecessary most of the time, but not always.
25
Lexar Pro 1000x 32GB main card - D800 can do almost one shot every .75 seconds at basic small jpg plus lossless raw after the buffer runs out. So I haven't used up more than 32GB in one day yet, even at Yosemite. I initially set my D800 for jpg large fine plus raw, the jpg is 16MB and the lossless compressed Raw is 48MB, now I just shoot Raw. I use my Sony I7 Win 10 tablet to view the Raw files very fast. And any of the USB 3.0 readers with my UDMA7 1000x cards read in the pix at 130mb/sec!
26
Transcend 1000x 32GB CF card - all the same comments as the lexar card, but cheaper.
