Tripopds

I well remember 40 years ago picking myself up off the pavement battered and bruised after telling my new wife I had just bought a tripod and thinking at the time it was a physical impossibility to fit the tripod in the place she had suggested(I expand the truth slightly but all married men will know the story line).
However it was a good buy from what was available at the time and I never regretted buying it.
Unfortunately it is now past its best and not as steady as it was so I was wondering what others would choose from the current range? A forty years lifespan is now no longer required The ability to work close to the floor is

Re: Tripopds

I got a carbon fibre Velbon Sherpa Pro 535 from Bristol Cameras for £115. Not sure if this one is still available or not, but it is light and sturdy. You can put the camera on the bottom of the column for low shots and hang weights on it to give it more stability if required.

Re: Tripopds

I still think this is amazing value and especially for working low to the ground as its column not only reverses but also can be swung horizontally and vertically it's better made than tripods costing over 2 or 3 times as much. I've had it for over 3 years and no complaints at all.

Re: Tripopds

Thanks I'll look at the Velbon range again, that was the make of my old one - long before carbon fibre of course. They don't seem to get as much publicity as some others nowadays.

The Velbon range will take that. Look at the 635 or equivalent.

Re: Tripopds

Do Benro do that one with clip locks for the legs rather than screw locks? I prefer the clip locks as I've found them to be so much quicker and easier to use.

Re: Tripopds

this is the one i have jake not expensive but a great tripod.The PRO 400 DX
writing by some one else


3 position leg angle locks allow lowering the tripod to for very low angle or macro photography work. It has a short center column built in, just unscrew the column into two pieces and it becomes 6.5 inches shorter. That allows the camera to be only 14 inches off the ground with the legs at their lowest position.

Benro do make some with lever locks. I am not a big fan of them but some love them mostly people who haven't tried anti rotation leg locks. Much quicker to erect in my experience and I still have both types. You struggle to get top end legs with clip locks since Gitzo started the anti rotation wagon.

Another vote for Benro and anti-rotation twist!

Just got the BENRO as with my 500mm I needed something more sturdy than my Benbo and, more importantly, a sturdy monopod. This combines both and have to say works extremely well in both tripod and monopod configurations. A nice bonus was how small it packs down to with the 180 degree legs making the 5 section unecessary IMHO!

Already been out combining tripod and monopod configurations and the changeover's pretty quick but, much more important, both are extremely stable - monopod bird shots, including low level, and tripod fungi, including ground shots!

I've got one of those, excellent tripod, built like a tank doesn't move and can go very close to the ground. A bit heavy for hiking though.

Re: Tripopds

My Manfrotto 458B Neotec Pro + 322RC2 Grip Action Ball Head do the job beautifully :
  • Good and solid, and well able to take a heavy load.
  • Fast operation, thanks to legs that you just twist + pull out/in - no fiddly knobs/levers - bliss!
  • Can go very close to the ground.
  • Exceptionally sturdy.
It really is a fab design - so quick and easy to use, I'll never go back to twiddling knobs

It is rather heavy, but has a built-in carry strap, and besides, the weight adds to the stability, and if I can manage to carry it I'm sure it'll be no problem for you Jake (some men do whinge about the weight of tripods )

It's rated 5/5 from 3 reviewers (not including me) at W/E, have a look-see, and here's the 322RC2 with 5/5 from 16 reviewers.

It's not a cheap set-up, but you get what you pay for - in this case, pure quality

Edit:
Sorry, the 322RC2 has max load of 5kg, but the 496RC2 has a 6kg max load

Re: Tripopds

Perhaps like you I keep using the things I'm used to,I'm not very up-to-date.
I still use a Benbo, yes it is heavy but so solid and versatile.
I,m 77yrs and can still carry it but then like my Benbo I,m rather ancient...good luck...Kenny

Re: Tripopds

Off topic ... Kenny, I never figured you for 77, and I agree that using old gear is great, so long as it serves its purpose Don't laugh, but my beloved clutch (or mechanical) pencil that I've had for 20 odd years finally met its match when my young daughter got hold of it yesterday ... silly, but I was sad momentarily Quickly got over it + ordered a new one ... small thing in a big world, but shought I'd share that little story with you

Re: Tripopds

Well keeping up to date is IMHO an advertising ploy. I think I take a wide variety of photographs but can honestly say although I can use all of my cameras functions in practice I use only a fraction of what I have available, trouble is you can't get a high quality simple camera.

Well, yes you can, the downside being that a simple camera means automating the functions, giving you less control.
