Tripod recommendations for a 5D Mk3 + 70-200 F2.8
Mar 28, 2013


I am in the market for a new tripod and wondered what other 5D users are currently using

I borrowed a friends budget Manfrotto last night and it shook a bit too much meaning I went home with a lot of blurred shots.

I will be using a variety of lenses but i stated the 70-200mm in my subject header as the combined weight of this with the 5D is quite heavy.

I does not need to be super lightweight as most of the time it will be in the back of a car and it won't be used on a daily basis however this is not to say that won't happen in the future.  I am currently considering a Manfrotto 055 but have not really settled on the material yet.

Can anyone offer any recommendations?
