I am looking for a good brand of Fluid head tripod. From this post, I am hoping to get a nice list of brands or ideas.
I was searching on ebay and found some good prices, but I don’t know of any reputable brands. I don’t want to end up getting some wall mart brand that claims to be fluid head.
Come on guys. I’m hoping someone can give me some ideas.
there are a lot of good brands of tripods. the things to look for in a tripod are weight, type of head, type of legs, price, maximum and minimum height and probably some other stuff too, but that’s what I look at. You’re already on the right track since you know to get a fluid head tripod. Look at the other characteristics as well to help decide what tripod works for you.
I know you want people to tell you specific brands, but that doesn’t really matter because there are so many good brands. Look at what you need and try to fulfill your needs in a reasonable price range. Keep in mind that with tripods, you get what you pay for.
everything I own has Manfrotto on it.
Here are some of the top brands: Bogen-Manfrotto, Sachtler, Vinten, Cartoni, and Libec. Check out B&H for the best prices and service.
