    Default A Guide to Carbon Fibre Tripods Specifications

    Hi,

    I made this 5 page document that compares the different carbon fibre tripods available in the market (Benro, Feisol, Giottos, Gitzo, Manfrotto, RRS, Slik, and Velbon).

    Hopefully this would make tripod selection easier.

    Happy Tripod Hunting.

    Cheers,
    Gorby

    Hi ZerocoolAstra,

    It didn't strike me when I posted it. I can understand your reluctance at downloading files from rapidshare.

    I have converetd the pages into jpg files and you can see (and download them if you wish) at the following link.

    i guess you had this originally in Excel... because i did once when i was hunting for a tripod... just FYI, you could add on load to weight ratio on these tripod and you might be able to see some unrealistic numbers some manufacturers claim...

    i was only "rajin" enough to cover a few brands i preferred... yours is really informative...
