It's a Gitzo 5 Series "Traveler" Systematic. Huge, sturdy, and is only about an inch longer than my actual travel tripod when folded down. My Sirui is 31 inches long when collapsed, which is just a bit too long to carry on a backpack, especially after you add a head, so I picked up the Gitzo to carry around.
I've contemplated the smooth reflections app, but I don't do super long exposures all that often. Granted being near the coast again that seems to be changing.
consider it a $10 15 stop ND with perfect optics that can get you 5 minutes of exposure. That's my typical use case for the app. It just happens to give you ISO 25 like performance in practice, the files are much better than single shot files.
The counter argument is to pay $120 for a proper 15 stop ND...... those are painful to work with, require calculations, work in bulb mode, have to complete the operation. With SR, you can complete early if light changes too much or you cannot wait.
thanks for the tripod recommendation, but too heavy I'm thinking. It does look very cool and seems to pack up very compact.
