| p.1 #8 · New Tripod for the tall... 3LT, Gitzo, Help?? |
vsg28: Haven't really thought about it, but I know I don't want something that is... well, pointless (i.e. might as well just handhold). I was thinking $400 for legs, but could be convinced otherwise - but I'd honestly rather spend $ on more glass if I can save on a tripod without sacrificing quality and function.
Tall tripods are heavy, CF or aluminum. For $400 for legs, you would want to consider aluminum legs (Gitzo, 3LT, Induro, Feisol and so on). They may weigh 1-2 lb more but will be within your budget easily. At this weight, vibration is really not an issue so the only thing is if you can live with something that weighs 5-7 (or even more) lbs.
