Reviews / Re: Are Gitzo's really overrated?!
« on: December 03, 2014, 03:02:35 AM »
To me, I think that both Gitzo's and chinese tripods are highly overprized. Their respective quality levels are not in the same league, but still there's other choices that delivers more bang for the buck. All in my opinion.
I have tried numerous other choices, believing what you say. But when I finally went for Gitzos and later also RRS, my only regret was that I didn´t do it earlier. But I´d still be interested in reading which tripods you refer to.
Eldar, I replaced my Gitzo with a new Sirui, (pronounced Soo-Ray) I cannot believe the quality for the price!  I love it compared to  my Gitzo, in fact within a week of using it, my Gitzo went on CL and offset the cost of the Sirui by over 50%!!  I did purchase their best carbon fiber model, without center column, it's absolutely fantastic!  I was going to replace my Gitzo with an RRS but I'm really glad I decided to give the Sirui a shot, it's excellent!

This guy sniffing out our sandwiches was how my wife learned that "They" can swim  ;)
Needless to say, it was the first and the last time she accompanied me on a bear walkabout...
Wow!

I found a tree at the local park that rains sap. I used a 7d + EFS 60mm macro lens for this shot. Thinking hard about picking up the 100mmm macro now...
That's wicked, I love it! :P
