I've recently upgraded from an aluminium tripod to a carbon fibre one. With the two-fold increment in investment, i have become more cautious when using my tripod.
I shoot plenty in and around the sea with my old tripod and hope to do so with the new one.
So what says you when it comes to carbon fibre and sea water? Im guessing the only adverse reaction would be sand + grease at the leg joints. Otherwise, i should be expecting a corrosive free experience with the CF tripod?
