- You will be subjected to the "drummers" hitting the railings...
- and to certain extent, it may be shakey if the wind is strong. But for this case (NEX6), shouldn't have any issues...
- If there is nothing to "hook" on, I feel that it's abit leaning forward (imbalance)
- Height... It's really short if you can't find a good tall pole/platform to hook on to or place on.
If one wants zoom coverage from UWA to tele and all f2.8, I'm pretty sure the weight of the lenses won't be anything lesser than 3kg. Plus the misc stuffs one will stuff into the bag when travelling. That may includes water, umbrella, batteries(all sorts), torchlights? etc. All these can weighs up to 4-6kg excluding the camera.
I know it is a mere 200g, but unless you fly full-service carriers, the low cost carriers will be round up the weight and charging you accordingly.
Besides, all things add up. That's why weight savings here and there can be useful, and this was why I switched from an aluminum tripod to a carbon fiber one.
In addition, following your logic, 200g won't add significant stability when fighting against strong winds. An additional 2kg won't be enough either. But what a carbon fiber tripod over a similar aluminum tripod can do is to take on more weight, which is what you would do when fighting against strong winds - adding weight.
As for tripod weight management, iirc, no body + native lens combo exceeds 1kg, much lower than the rated 3kg of t-005. With a setup that light, hanging a small weight or ur camera bag at the tripod hook is more than enough to stabilise the system in light to moderate wind. I'm a nex6 + t-005 user and I can attest to that
Guess I have to drop by tkfoto to have a look and feel of the tripod. Currently I looking at n2205 and t2204x. But when folded, it's long.... =.=
whoa. budget a bit high. can get most tripods already...
