Those are both very interesting compact tripods.

Couple of quick snaps of my tripods. Please excuse the moving blanket muslin. :oops:

Nice! I just ordered a 34L as well.

I'm really enjoying these tripods, particularly the larger Horusbennu. The Fotopro is great when I'm looking to throw something in a backpack, but the limited max. height is kind of constraining. Better than nothing, though.

The Horusbennu weighs 1.19 pounds (without a head), if I remember correctly.

Will do. It's out of stock so I will have to wait a while.

Yeah that doesn't surprise me. When I bought mine, it was the last one.

I enjoy the anticipation of waiting for something new in the mail.

As long as it don't take too damn long! :lol:

Whoa! What a tiny tripods!
What are model names? Or prices?

I'm happy with my Feisol, but sometimes I'd like have something really small to drop in my backpack, and be able to use with a modern head.

I wrote about my first impressions about each here:

They're both great for throwing in backpacks. The Fotopro compared to my Benro c2680t.

My current setup, and hoping this will be the last Tripod and expensive head I will ever buy ...

(Sorry for Pic Quality, my 2nd Body is in service, so had to use Phone ...)

The Tripod is a Gitzo Series 4 Systematic GT4542 LS. Maybe Overkill for my current Gear (Longest Lens is Canon 300 4.0 L IS, but this one works great with TKs too, and I am eyeing the Tamron 150-600 ...), but I really enjoy the stability and ease of mind it gives me.
Next is an RRS Levelling Base (TA-A-U-LB), crowned by a Berlebach Albatros Head, a pretty unique and stunning Two Way Tilt Head.
An RRS L Bracket connects the 1DX.
The Head is not only great for long Lenses, I really enjoy it with standard and wide angle Lenses too! Very precise movement, and sensitive controls ....
For Macro and getting down and dirty I have a Berlebach Mini L tripod with integrated Levelling, which I often use with a Markins Q3T.
And a Sirui Carbon 1004 completes the collection, for traveling ... No comparison to the other legs, but not bad at all!

Manfrotto 475B with Sirui K-40X. This was the first time I attempted setting up the tripod from a kayak. This was what I had in mind when purchasing the tripod.

Here is the setup. Sorry for the iPhone image quality.

They are braces. Without the braces the legs would close when trying to set them up in the water. That would be very bad. Below is a link to their Web site with pictures.

Gitzo 5561t monopod with RRS head and lever release. The top plate was swapped with that from a 2 series, as the original was enormous. I've been carrying it in the Maxpedition Universal sheath on my Lowepro Utility belt. The third photo shows the original large plate.
