Re: BENRO C2580T vs gitzo GT2541

Thanks for the comments and yes, you are right that I've been doubting for a period.

Why.. well, I'm not somebody who buys something in an impuls. Maybe I doubts to much, that true but I can spend my money only once. I'm also not a professional but even though, I don't want to buy something which in the outdoors doesn't give me the results I expect. Even when something costs me only 10 euro's, if it seems not to work for me, I regret buying it.

Second, I don't have a lot of experience with using tripods so probably I don't know what I miss. If I was a tripod user for years and it would broke, I've allready bought one new.

I'm indead looking at tripods for some time but not on a a daily base. That would be terrible. The idea of buying one comes up, I consider, don't deside and then the idea flushes away for weeks, months and then it returns...

A shop in my area doesn't sell Markins heads but has benro tripods. I think, I buy the Q10 first and go with it the this shop and test is on the Benro. If I like it, I save 300 euro and buy one, if not, I go the gitzo route.... Would that make sence? Probable it will

But unfortunately my laptop died yesterday..... It from 2006 so end of life.
