Tripods
Posted June 4th, 2011 - 6:38 pm by from Somerville, United States (Permalink)
Hey Guys,

I want to buy a tripod and I needed some suggestions. Let me know if you prefer a brand/type over another.

The weather got better so let me know if you are up to some photo-shooting excursions!

Cheers,

Simo

Personally I feel manfrotto has really nice tripods for the price, but depends what you are looking for. I have yet to find an affordable light weight tripod that I like, and carrying a heavier tripod on day hikes is no fun.

Simo,

I had to do a lot of research before I got my tripod last winter. I guess the main questions you need to ask yourself are:
1. What's your budget?
2. What is the maximum weight you are going to load on the tripod? This is important because it affects the stability of the tripod.
3. What are you going to use it for, i.e. studio work, walking around city or hiking?

Let me know and I could suggest some names based on that.

Manyu
