Thread: Question on tripod

    Default Question on tripod

    Hi again,

    I am looking at the Gitzo or equivalent tripod, those superlight ones to mount Canon 50D and 100mm macro lense. What is a good model to consider for budget above 1k.

    I may in future get a 400mm for bird photography, should the tripod be the same or recommend for a separate one for heavier birding set-up.

    A budget over $1k can be $1,001.00 or $9,999.00..... so....

    A 400mm lens can be an f/5.6 or f/2.8..... so....

    Lets say $1,000-1,500
    400mm lense f/2.8(whatever it means, for a newbie like me)

    Look forward to your reply.
