Tripod to last a lifetime.
on 11 December 2014
This, like many photographers, is not my first Tripod purchase. It is in fact my third. Slow learner. If you intend to be a decent photographer, or indeed have become one, then it will not be long before the realisation kicks in...You will and do need a Good Quality Tripod. If your photography entails Travel, or Walking, then the lighter yet more stable one is even more Vital. Well you have now found it.
I am 6ft tall, walk many miles a week, photograph most things that move, and a love of scenery too.
Photographing Birds and Wildlife demands a varied amount of equipment, Mainly long and heavy lenses, powerful flashes etc.So i needed to reduce the overall wieght of my bag as much as possible.
Even with the center column removed and the short adaptor installed, this tripod puts the camera at Eye level, holding my long 400mm lens, Flash unit, triggers etc perfectly stable. Yes i have had to tighten the Leg Locks in the early days... but now the stay completly still.
One of my friends on seeing this tripod on a Kingfisher Shoot ordered the same one on his return home.
excellent quality product from a quality manufacturer. You will soon realise that this expensive piese of kit will last you a lifetime.
