| p.1 #5 · Feisol Traveler Tripod CT-3441S Rapid + Markins Q3 ? |
About 6 months ago I bought a Feisol 3441s to replace my Manfrotto 055cx/3. I wanted a tripod which was lighter and folded up smaller because I sometimes use public transport to get to one of my favourite locations (an island) where the cost of taking a car would be prohibitive. I was not disappointed. The Feisol is light and strong, obviously not in the same class as the SOTA boutique marques but well worth it.
Imagine my surprise when I discovered that the accessory spike/rubber feet for the Manfrotto fitted the Feisol perfectly. Normal rubber feet and a spike, no wrestling with cold fingers trying to remove, and then not lose, the stupid Gitzo type. Result. I never use weight hooks, preferring to couple the mass of my backpack directly to the tripod when necessary.
I can`t comment on how the Markins fits in traveller mode but my PhotoClam PC36 is just slightly too wide but it`s not an issue for me. HTH
