Hi guys, first post in CS!
I've been considering getting a tripod to take Macro shots, night shots and try out light painting. I sort of know what I'm looking for, but I need some help with the terms used in Tripods.
1. Some 3 legs open up together, some can be moved individually. At really awkward angles. What is this feature called? I read about it somewhere some time ago. Is it "non-geared legs" or something like that?
2. I need something with a removable center piece so that I can place my camera close to to the ground. Again, what is this feature called?
3. If anyone would be so kind to suggest a particular model that suits my needs. This will make my search faster as defending the nation leaves me very little time in front of the computer.
