Are two travel tripods one too many?
Aug 26, 2014

Do any of you have multiple tripods for travel (e.g., a more sturdy one when not traveling too far, a lighter one for air travel or backpacking, etc.)?

I originally purchased a carbon fiber Dolica tripod that I like, is sturdy, folds to about 16 inches and weighs about 4 pounds, but am finding that even that is a little larger and heavier than I want to take with me for air travel.  I was going to buy a little table top tripod, but wound up ordering a Sirui T-005X that I found used for a nice discount.  It folds to less than 12 inches and weighs about 2 1/2 pounds.

I don't even use tripods very often, but can see why people wind up with several of them.
