    Next time, you might want to grease it internally as well.... Before taking it for swimming.

    If he can get 50 great photos out of a tripods it is great.

    He just has to buy tripods in bulk and use them as consumables.

    Carry a few buckets of water and give the tripods a good rinse before collapsing it.

    When reach home give it another wash and a good spray especially at the joints.

    very little metal parts, and can be wash down very easy. Locking of legs is cramping the woods together.

    But good to lightly oil the metal part after washing it.

    Metal.

    But no way to get jammed, if you have seen leong tripod.

    I'm reading up extensively on it, the only issue is to ensure it is varnished, so that it don't end up swelling.

    Leong, did you varnish your tripod? Think must varnish once in a while...
