  • I just spend close to $300 for a CF tripod and ball head also.  I consider that not too expensive for quality gears and my health(my back and legs)
  • If that is the only reason, then I say continue to use your tripod and for anything at ground level, use your bag and get a shutter release or use timer.  You may want to get shutter release for ...
  • After reading many threads I find that the listed maximum weight the tripod can handle doesn't necessary guarantee it will be stable. If you read this review and take a closer look at how well the...

  • still don't understand how you come up with half the price? Yes, the leg alone cost just under $100 and you don't count the ball head price? Even comparing the leg alone at the listed price, $100...

  • For some reason your post didn't feel right the first time I read it. After I re-read it, this was knackering one me this whole time. The very first part is what have been bothering me, it's not ...
  • No I didn't miss your point. But first let me answer your 2nd question.  I saw a brand new G-20x on amazon for $68, so that's what I got.  This ball head is 3.86 inches tall.  The T-2205x height ...
  • I say, you should watch this youtube clip http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yGlE8UK6Ij4 and tune into about 2 minutes 30 seconds.

  • @trekkeruss, I don't know. One of the tripod I used to have got 2 legs, I think it was broken and I threw it away.

  • Considering, this review have the Sirui T-2005x, the most direct carbon fiber equivalent would be T-2205x. So, I don't know which Sirui CF he gonna pick, but I think there will be at least one...

  • My guess would be shooting on ice and something slippery, like after a rainy day?

  • For about $15 more than the price listed, I got a use T-2205x and the same as reviewed brand new G-20x. Of course, I spend like 2-3 days doing research and looking for deals. So I guess I beat...

  • While I was looking for more research on this, I found B&H have a used(?) T-2205x with the item condition of 9+, that's practically brand new for about $220. At that price it's cheaper than the ...
  • I have a quick glance at this model earlier also, but didn't look at the height seriously.  For one thing, I'm not a tall guy, under 6'.  So having taller tripod isn't gonna be much good to me.  ...
  • From the look of the spec, it's actually a little over 20".  This is problematic as it may not be allow as carry on, and it can be hard to fit into carry-on case/bag.
  • Yes, this is one thing I get confused but don't exactly have any solid evidence one way or another.  I read one(single) post at POTN about somebody was saying his/her family own both but felt that ...
  • Interesting, from the look of those images, I would have thought the T-2205x would have the ball head extended farther.
  • While I originally thought the T-2205X would be shorter, it seem not so with the ball head attach. After watching enough reviews on youtube(which mostly not in english BTW), I realize the folded ...
  • Both of these issue I have pointed out earlier.  I don't understand either but the fact is clear that for whatever Sirui reasons are, the spike feet seem to add some considerable weight.  As far ...
  • I say watch this two youtube clips, less then 5 mins each. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p2OUimhoVjA this one compare the Benro MeFoto vs the Sirui. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yGlE8UK6Ij4 this ...
  • preface: Just like many people before me, I made the same mistake and brought a cheap tripod long time ago and don't use it as often. Well, I am not using it is another problem; but when it try to ...
