Tripod stability
9 months ago

I am asking this in Landscape forum, b/c i figured you guys use tripods the most.

Are many section tripods less stable than fewer section tripods if the same number of sections is extended?

Let's say we compare 3 section (max extension 60 inch) gitzo series 5 tripod to a 6 section gitzo series 5 tripod (max extension 100 inches) both extended to 60 inch height. Will the 6 section tripod be less stable; assuming i am only extending larger sections to achieve 60" height?

Thanks ahead
