Lookin for Carbon Fiber Tripod for my A7. Looking for height/good price!
9 months ago

Hey all.  I currently have a nice Sirui tripod.  It's an aluminum unit with a ball head.

When I bought it, I had my larger Canon 5d MK2 with some larger lenses.  Anyhow, the tripod itself ISNT light.  For backpacking it is a nuisance.

Im looking for a Carbon Fiber unit (preferable under 500$ at the MOST) that isnt necessarily bulky and designed for a huge platform, but moreso a smaller camera like the A7.  I dont need something that supports 30lbs!  However, I would like a unit that goes higher then say 55"  (Im 6'2, and I like to be able to get it up a little larger...)

Most of the higher end carbon tripods are built for obviously large gear, but I dont need bulk. Stability is nice, but I want to go for lightness in this case.

Any and all suggestions welcome!

Canon EOS 5D Sony Alpha 7
