As a nature photographer I often work in dim light and all alone, so I often need a sturdy but rather light tripod to help me with my camera and flashes.
Since I found Feisol tripods they got me. I normally use the CT-3442 Tournament tripod, a medium-size, carbon fiber tripod that only weight about 1 kg. Being made of carbon fiber, even if it’s not heavy, it keeps its position and absorb every vibration pretty well. I love lightweight tripods, cause they never lead you to think “ok, today I have to walk, I’ll leave the tripod at home”.
