Re: stable - 'affordable' tripod....
In reply to orchidblooms, Aug 9, 2012

I just picked up the Feisol tourney tripod...for the $, to me, it's way more value compared to RRS/Gitzo.

I was also considering this one:

But it didn't give me as many options with the base. My friend also told me, he felt the tourney is more stable even though they have the same weight rating.

Even the Feisol leveler is $79 which is really reasonable compared to the Gitzo base leveler.

Considering the weight of these tripods (1.1kg, 2.45lbs), their max load (10kg/22lb), the size/portability (48cm, 18.9" folded)...it's pretty impressive.

Took me a long time to find a tripod that I really wanted to upgrade to. I went with the Tourney CT-3342.

looking for advise...

i think i need a more stable tripod...

i have a manfrotto neotec tripod that seems very useful in certain circumstances...

it is very easy and quick to deploy - can set it up with one hand if i am twisted ofer a tree in a swamp of bog... lots of plusses....

but, i can 'clearly' see however, that i need a more stable tripod for some of the things i wish to do...

i am using an acratec gp-s ballhead...

and simply cannot afford an expensive rss or other 800.00+ unit... (aarraugh...)

what are folks using and finding acceptable with d800 and up to 300mm lens combos

many thanks
