Gene, help me find something.
Look at the image please, specifically the little side mount.
What is this? Be nice to have a second camera on it....second small camera :)

It's on the Leofoto LS-284C tripod.

The bracket looks like what is called a "magic arm", an adjustable, articulating arm. The female threads on the tripod appears to be something that comes with that particular tripod.

Here's a link to an articulating arm as an example.

Here is a link to the articulating arm I bought that comes with a clamp at one end. I use it to clamp onto a light stand but it would also clamp onto a tripod leg.

This one looks more like the image you posted but with a clamp at one end.

Gene thanks as always.

And for those who might be interested in the Leofoto LS 284C
Here's a size shot in the Mindshift Backlight 18L, and a past pic of the 18L
just for size reference......I know, no one carries a tripod inside their packs :)
p.s. I'm using the ol' NEX 16mm as lens cap.

looking forward to what your impressions are on that tripod...small and light would be nice for hiking longer distances when I am trying to go light...I have the Gitzo Basalt Series 2 for that right now, but it is a 3 section tripod that is still pretty long and can be a bit tricky in tighter hiking conditions...

I wish the carbon peak design travel tripod was cheaper. I just can’t stomach paying £380 I don’t think

Tripod looks good!!

I finally got hold of the Manfrotto 190go! today & there's not much difference between it & my (old faithful) Redsnapper aside from the centre column lifts up & goes horizontal. Not sure that's something I need or would use much in all honesty.

I can deal with the price...but that head and little spindly post it sits on really makes me uneasy...doesn't look stable...if I could put my hands on one first, that might change my mind...

Lefoto first thoughts-

For ultra light I carry the Sirui T-025X.
Comparing the Leofoto LS-284C its apples to
oranges-the Leofoto is way way stiffer.
So for shorter hikes.....Travis I would carry the Leo to
Round Knob/Jane Bald/Grassy Ridge.

Working height with A7Riii as topper is fine for me, 6 foot tall me, without
the add-on center support. I doubt I'll ever use it and it will be lost
in the gear pile in no time.

Ball-head=mediocre as Joe mentioned in an earlier post, but again comparing
to the little Sirui it will be fine for an A7Rxxx body+12-24G I tried it on. Maybe
maybe not for the 100-400/200-600 but, and I know some do, I won't be doing
that but maybe once :)

The other tripod we use and has been from Iceland to Costa Rica etc. is the Mefoto, an older
model closet to the current Globetrotter in aluminum. The Leo is def. an upgrade there.

Solid, affordable, compact in a nutshell. Upgrade the ballhead if you feel the need.

I’m working my way through some YouTube reviews of it just now. So far no one has even mentioned the column which surprises me as it looks weak

Speaking of that lens Randall, it's still trucking along.

So everyone knows what a Drone Fly is. These little guys are in the backyard.
I discovered I can never see them (super super small) until I sit down (I carry a pad when
I got out) and just start looking around. Sooner, but more usually later one will catch my eye.
Then I hope their body position and light are OK.

You read my mind...Grassy Ridge...that trail requires a narrow profile...I had issues last time...and I want to do some other hikes in GSMNP...

Back from the Baja so will be posting way too many blah shots to make you all suffer thru. I go to the Baja to fish not to take pics..... I had to skip last year due to some issues and we usually go to La Paz but since Chapo's capture La Paz is a war zone so we went to a new place called Loreto. I love it much quieter and easy to get around. But had a horrible time fishing due to wind and finding the right outfit to fish with.

I ended up spending an afternoon on the beach and the birds were entertaining me so I tried some BIF .....nothing as good as MM I really need to work on my A9 100-400 settings for this with the added caveat of shooting some from a 23 foot Panga in 4-5 foot seas.

Got a few I like

I watched Kai, tony Northrop and Alex strohl reviews and none of them mentioned the thin column. I wonder if it’s really strong since it’s made of carbon? I wish I hadn’t watched the videos as now I want one :D
