    Default Help for Tripod use for Normal & Macro shoots!

    Hi
    Any kind CSer can help me with the Manfrotto models? Went to the website and got confused
    Requirement: Height 176cm
    Loading : 7kg load

    I need thetripod model that has this Rapid Column that can be place vertically(which is normal) and horizontally for Macro shoots.

    I saw the manfrotto model that has this function but when i click that particular model, the pic does not show that versatile column.
    If any of the Cser own this tripod, please share with me the model and cost.

    Thanks a bunch!

    Not sure which tripod is good for you. Best is you go down to CP to see their different model/brand of tripods.

    For D50+105mm + Raynox 3500 for macro setup with tripod, it is recommended to use a focusing rail and release cable.

    But the price difference between the 170-500 and 50-500... I might as well save up more for the 50-500...
