My heavy Manfrotto Tripod, is not going coming hiking with me, but I still need something so I can take long shutter speeds.
90% of the time I shoot low to the ground, less than 50cm roughly. But often on rocky ground beside streams, or of on the cost, down on the rocks. This means I need something with adjustable legs. So I was thinking of a tripod with 2 section legs (so they can be shortened) and also legs that can be bent to 90deg from the camera (so camera can basically be sitting on the ground. I dont want a center column, and would need to be Carbon to save weight.
Camera and lens weighs 2kgs (4lbs), so it needs to be strong, and sturdy. I would like a ball head, if possible.
Dont really have a budges, but hoping that since its small, it will be cheapish.
Does anyone know of a tripod like this?
