Bogen / Manfrotto 3001- Pro Tripod

product_83851
Review Date: May 19, 2021 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Solid, relatively lightweight
Cons:
Basic tripod

A good, solid relatively lightweight entry level or travel tripod. This is just a basic tripod but a great one. I no longer use this but only because my needs have changed and will use this or similar again when needed.

Pros: Good quality for a zoom in full frame format
Cons:
No really for this class of lens

All the resolving power I need. This lens stays on my Nikon. Unless I'm shooting medium format, this is the lens I use. I've used primes that are better, but as far as Nikon zoom, this is my top choice.

Pros: This is a good solid camera body as you would expect from the Nikon D series. Despite being 12MP vs the 16MP D4, it has excellent resolving power and I've made prints up to 48 inches of my figure/model photos.
Cons:
This is an older model, I no longer use it, but had no real complaints. It does lack minor updates and features compared to its successor

Nikon 17-55mm f/2.8G AF-S DX

Pros: Sharp for a zoom, quick focus
Cons:
DX format

This is my favorite lens when using the D2Xs. It is pretty good when you don't have a lot of room to get back from your subject. Minimal distortion. Some ghosting under back-lit conditions, but shouldn't be a problem for studio work where you have control of the light. Versatile enough that you can be lazy and not change lenses so often.
