I am a noobie and a hobbyist. I've been putting together a compact, lightweight kit for outdoor shooting, and I've decided on the Benro Transfunctional Travel Angel in the 0 series, (holds up to 13 lbs). It's really perfect for me, in every way.
I was all set to purchase the aluminum version, but really started to wonder...... When it comes to wind specifically, will CF make a big difference? The tripod has a weight hook, which I will definitely be using.
This area is windy on a regular basis. On the other hand, I am just a hobbyist, and I feel CF, at almost double the price for this model, is a bit extravagant for someone at my level. Any thoughts most welcome.
