    BTW I think you can setup a neotec tripod in less than 30 sec if you are using a ball head. It is a simple press and release.

    But seriously, this NeoTec thingi is nothing but fancy nancy stuff, its not like you have a How-Fast-Can-You-Set-Up-Your-Tripod Competition to compete in...

    A Tripod have to be:
    1. Of Suitable Height
    2. Of Suitable Stability relative to your equipment
    3. Of Suitable Built to last until you are so old you need a walking stick (den u will use it more often... )
    4. Of Suitable Weight so you won't be bitching abt it when u bring it out...

    dun really like gitzo .... i am a damn lazy person i dun like the way gitzo open up the leg ... need to turn turn turn turn turn .... thats why i like this neotec one ...
    the 190 and 055 CF version is just 400g lighter ... i dunno about the price different guess it is at least $200 more in that case i dun think that 400g worth the $200 .....

    400g is already quite an reduction from just the 3 legs... i'd prefer to get the 4 section 055 version, cos its going to be a shorter version than my 055, and at the weight or a 190...
    Logging Off. "You have 2,631 messages stored, of a total 400 allowed." don't PM me.
