So about 4 years ago, with the help of many of you on POTN, I purchased a Gitzo GT3541LS for my future photography needs, back then, now I need your help again.
Here is my post from many years ago:
Consists of this:
2. Markins M20 NQS
3. RSS B2LRII QR Clamp and L Plate for 5D Mark II
Well, times have changed, and I need something lighter...a travelers setup, something I'm not going to dread taking with me, that will hold my 5DMKII, and mid size to smaller lenses.
Kind of like this one:
So my real question is, should I sell my current setup, legs and ball head, I think the RSS clamp can still be used on the new setup, and buy one similar to this traveler one I linked to? Or is there a newer setup that I should consider? What about trades?
Not even sure what my legs and ball head are going for on the open market?
I'd like to stay in the Gitzo world...love their quality. Any suggestions?
Oh and so my goal for the newer travelers light legs, are to just be able to get out and get some landscapes, and do some things I haven't been able to do before with just my camera and not triopd, as I didn't take the one I have out, its pretty heavy even for carbon fiber. The Gitzo Explorer line looks cool to me, as you can pretty much bend and shape it to whatever angle you need. Considering that line.
With my current setup, I'm not sure how much it all weighs, it feels light but yet heavy to travel with, if that makes any sense?
Wondering that weight vs. the 1541 series etc...
I guess I need to decide which line up of the kits fits my needs, even though that is yet to be determined 100%.
