With all the threads about tripods, I thought I should also ask something on this topic.
It used to be said that 3 sections make a sturdier tripod as the last section ain't too thin like that of a 4 section.
A 3 sectioned carbon-fibre tripod weighs a lil' more than a 4 sectioned.
It also is a little longer when totally closed.
With the advancements in technology now,
would you still believe the old saying and go for a 3 sectioned ?
Or would you go for a 4 sectioned ?
Please add a post why you choose either option.
