Had this in the Wildlife forum but probably more appreciate here...
Planning my trip to South Africa and know I am going to want a tripod.
What I have now is just not travel compatible ...too large and heavy.
I'm concerned with all the low light situations there may be in the afternoon game drives and want to be somewhat prepared even if I can't use the tripod in certain situations. Also concerned with the weight limitations the travel company has mostly because of the small plane flights. They are limiting baggage and such to 44 lbs. Doesn't seem like much for an 18 day trip.
So I have been looking for a smaller lighter tripod and found this one:
Looked at it in a local camera store and it is nice and small -- 2.6 lbs and 12.6" (folded). Only problem is that it is only 4.26' tall. It's not totally stable but I have limitations so...have to deal with that I guess.
Anybody use this tripod or have other suggestions?
I'll be using a T4i with 70-300L most of the time. Also will bring my 15-85.
