Whoops! Yep, I did a wrong link - sorry! Trouble is some stores list slightly different models. If you click through to Amazon and search for Manfrotto, you'll see all the products they have. There's also some owner reviews on there you might want to check out. To be honest, all of their tripods are very good.

Hi Bulls, they look fine to me viewed small - is there anything you're not happy about - point us to a speciifc image where something has gone wrong and we can take a closer look.

In terms of cleaning, I'd try and avoid getting it dirty in the first place!

Hi Bulls, it's easier if you tell us what YOU think is wrong with the pictures.

I think the ones of the cat look fine.

The cat is blurred because it was moving quickly. To freeze the cat, you'd need a faster shutter speed. Looking at the properties of your shot, the shutter speed was 1/30, which is quite slow.

For this kind of shot, you'd probably need something closer to 1/250, or at least 1/100 anyway... And for that you'll need to increase your ISO. Yours was set to 250 ISO - I presume automatically - so for this kind of shot you might want to temporarily increase it to, say, 800 ISO.

Alternatively you could use the flash.

But I personally like to see a bit of blurring in an action shot as it gives the impression of speed and motion. if you froze the cat it would look like it was just stood still.

Yep, motion blur. If you set Auto-ISO and then shoot at S(hutter priority) with the shutter set to 1/100 Sec or 1/250 sec you should be fine, as the camera automatically increases the sensibility if you're shooting under low light conditions (as was the case with this photo - it was shot indoors).
