Re: TRAVEL TRIPOD < 1Kg (inc. Levelling / Pano head)b

Nice one - thanks for sharing. How do you like the head?

I have a lightweighttravel tripod that weight 940 gram including head: Leofoto LC-224C + Sunwayfoto FB-28i ballhead. I got this tripod as lighter alternative to my Gitzo Mountaineer tripod with purpose for lightweight hiking and backpacking trips.

I find the lightweight tripod useable with a light camera lens, but it is a compromise. For a next trip I will consider to take my beloved Gitzo Mountaineer GT1542 with Markins Q3 ballhad. The Gitzo is so much more stable and has much better working height - and apart from that I very much prefer the overall handling. The Gitzo works perfect in every way. But it weight 700 gram more...
