I’m in the market for a new tripod…my Vanguard has served me well for a short time since I destroyed my Frotto but the gripped D800 beast with heavy lenses has me wanting something more solid…It’s doing my head in with all the research….Benro, Sirui, Feisol, RRS, Gitzo..I’ve researched and researched. I think I’ve read every available review of every available tripod out there, watched all the utube vids and googled it to the enth degree…to the point I’m loosing sleep over it..I know that’s a bit OCD…but aaaarrhhh…!! I think I’m heading towards the Benro C2580T with a B2 head…they come in a kit on ebay but my thoughts are that I need a more substantial ballhead.(wanting the G3)..I know that if I put it out there everyone will have an opinion as it all depends on personal criteria and preference..The Benro seems good value for the price and I know it’s no Gitzo..
Has anybody had experience with them…? Fiesol seems awesome as well…but I just can’t bring myself to spending that much on something that I end up working to death after a few years with all the treatment I give it…Any thoughts appreciated..
ps; crikey it’s quiet on here..!!
