I am getting into tripods and wonder how many people use sand bags? What's a good one and how much weight? I am thinking I can use my camera bag but it would be nice to have a spec ail tool for this. Any recommendations?

Mike

What equipment are you planning on putting on top and how much are you looking to spend


Had a 6D....
Then had a daughter....
Now have an SL2 and Mavic Pro.... Man life changes.
I would encourage you... To just go for it.

Not sure it's all that important and I am thinking hanging my bag will be more than enough
