Carbon fiber v. aluminum
Mar 21, 2013

I'm looking for comparative tests of carbon fiber v. aluminum tripods.

We've all heard about the benefits of carbon fiber compared to aluminum - stronger, better damping, etc.

I haven't seen any controlled tests of two similar tripods, one carbon fiber, the other aluminum, to see which works better in practice.

The only things I've found when searching are general statements about the benefits of carbon fiber (at a higher price).

Are there any such tests? If so, please provide a link.
