Yeah, didnt think this tripod is thaaaat good :)
I think she was shooting surfers or so?

I had the dought that the tripod plus the head wouldnt fit in the tripod bag when the head is attached, but since the legs are foldable to the other side it fits perfectly in! Very happy with this!

David, how have you been finding this tripod in use. Mine arrived today so I've literally only had 5 minutes with it in the house to check it over. Initial thoughts are that the leg angle is quite steep in its normal position but tripod feels sturdy. I thought there was a bit of flex but I think it was just because the rubber feet were slipping on the hardwood when I applied some weight to the tripod. I feel that I want to add spikes but it looks like it won't fit in the bag once spikes are attached??

Anyway just wanting to hear your opinion on it now that you have had a chance to use it

I have no problems with the legs. They are stiff enough to hold something. You can adjust it on the screws on each leg.

And i think you are right. I dont think that the legs will fit in the bag when spikes are attached..

After a few hours out i must say that this tripod is so a joy to use. I think you will be happy with it :)

Thanks David, I will give it a proper try this weekend (instead of just in the house!). Im sure it will be fine as I read a lot of good reviews on it and never saw a bad review

Hi there. I have the Fiesol 3442 and it truly is a great tripod. I love that I can extend to eye level without the need for a center column - makes the setup very sturdy. Very well made and lovely to use.

Make sure you get the rapid version of the tripod if you have the funds. The anti-rotation leg locks make the tripod quick and easy to setup and take down.

+1 or 2?
I have a friend who has the 3342 and another who has the 3442 - they are excellent tripods for the money!

Yup, that's all they sell. I am not certain but I don't think they do the rotating (?) leg versions anywhere anymore. To me this feature is simply not an issue. I have Gitzo tripods with and without ALR (Anti Leg Rotation as Gitzo call it) and as I extend/retract the leg sections in sequence either system works perfectly for me, though some seem to find it an issue.
