Re: Tripod research is testing my sanity, advice please

Asking an advice on tripod will give you an headache as nobody will agree completely, since we all look at things differently and not everybody thinks GITZO is the only choice for a solid tripod.

I suggest you made up your mind on size (folded and extended with column not extended for stability), weight, maximum load, need of a hook on the column, stability (basically tube diameter, sections and tripod weight versus the kids on weather you foresee), and so on.

I ended up with three actually (travel, all purpose, heavy lenses/stability) and only one is carbon fiber.

Same for tripod heads ... ton of choice. But here at least the good ones have similar pricing.

Good luck.
