Question Tripods for Landscapes.

This has probably been up a few times but iam looking for a new tripod to replace the one I've got, its a manfrotto 200 model which is great & very sturdy but put it on your backpack & it feels as if you are pulling a car along, one that i would like has to be light for the backpack & hiking ,sturdy for landscapes & in a price range from 100-150, thanks for any advice.

Re: Tripods for Landscapes.

Was impressed with the Velbon Sherpa pro cf535 #7 now at bargain price of 115 here Velbon Sherpa Pro CF535 & PH157Q

I would recommend calling 1st to make sure they have it in stock.

Some more background reading here for ya :-

Re: Tripods for Landscapes.

I guess a carbon fibre tripod is the way to go for you. Dave picked up a bargain Velbon a while back - 115, i think.

Re: Tripods for Landscapes.

Velbon are generally very good value and well made, and the importers (Intro 2020) carry spares and accessories (e.g. spare QR plates) if you need them. Especially at that price I can't think of anything better.

Re: Tripods for Landscapes.

I bought the Sherpa CF545 and I am really pleased with it. It is light yet sturdy. Just one point though, it may not be tall enough for some people, but its fine for me. Check out the dimensions on the web.

Re: Tripods for Landscapes.

Dave, how is the Velbon?

It looks really good value for money, are the carbon legs sturdy enough?

Thinking of getting this for myself as a late xmas pressie ()
