New tripod

Hi folks

I recently bought one of these tripods

XCSOURCE® Profeshional Portable Magnesium Aluminium: Amazon.co.uk: Camera & Photo

As of yet I've not been out with it, but at first glance and handling, it really is a beaut. Very light, one of the legs unscrews and coupled with the centre sections becomes the perfect height monopod, which I think is a very clever idea. It comes with a carry bag also and all for 50 delivered.

If the admins can add this to the equipment section, I'll do a more in depth review in a week or so once I've been out with it a couple of times.

NB: I was a little sceptical initially due to the poor spelling in it's listing but so far I'd say sack the translator not the designer!!

Re: New tripod

I used to have a big heavy tripod (second hand) but it broke so I replaced it with a lightweight tripod (Velbon). At the time I was taking IR shots using a standard camera and red filter which required 30 sec exposures. This was no good as the Velbon was swaying in the wind. I bought a reasonably decent Manfrotto which was fairly sturdy but not very heavy and this has been useful ever since. My son took the Velbon. Recently, I have found the Manfrotto too heavy and large for some photoshoots (e.g. fungi) and was given a small lightweight tripod (a small velbon) which is fine in these circumstances. I really need a caddy to carry all my equipment for me so I can select the ideal on each occasion but this is not going to happen.

Enjoy your new tripod.
