First, thank you to all the experts in Clubsnap. I did a lot of research before I bought the Sirui N1024.
Before that, I was using the humble Nikon tripod for almost two years
The more I research for new tripods, the more confusion I got. And this chart can be quite confusing for newbies.
..even the head selection can be confusing !
Identify our own requirement.
- Light weight and portable, means carbon fibre, ie $$.
- Go and test friends' tripod. identify the different brands/models/benefits, before visiting the shops.
- Bring your camera along when you are shortlisting the tripod.
I have blog about my experience here, hope it will be helpful for some newbies.
