u4/3 Tripods
Jan 23, 2014

Hello all! I'm wondering what tripods you're all using. My current favourite is the Benro Travel Angel II, the ball head is great (B0) but the downfall is that the legs are 5 sectioned, and become less stable especially as you raise the centre column, and I consider it too heavy and too long at 1.7kg and 40cm. The B0 ball dual action ball head I tested was exactly to my specifications - and it only weighs 0.3kg which means the tripod is 0.4kg too heavy! (At least.)

Are there any alternatives which offer reduced weight and size, but are stable enough for my G5 and still offer the flexibility of the Benro? -- Carbon Fibre excluded.

Thanks in advance,
