this year i think i will treat myself to a new travel tripod!
I have a Benro Travel Angel that has worked pretty well for me, but am starting to think I could benefit from one that is a little sturdier for day-to-day work. If that happens, at least my Benro will become my travel tripod instead of my primary tripod.
I also have the Gorilla DSLR flexible tripod. I have only used it 2-3 times, but just one of those times alone paid for it. Just saying it's an option for a travel tripod.
