    Default The new pod

    Finally put some coin out for a decent tripod. I just love this one because of the articulating center arm. I've always wanted a way to have control of the image at extremely low angles and this unit delivers in spades. It's a Manfrotto 190XPROB with a 804RC2 head. $299.00 at London Drugs

    Looks like a great handy-dandy tripod. Mine is rather old and not that expensive but works fairly well but not nearly as well as that one from the look of it.

    Cool, I bought the exact same tripod at the Camera show and exhibition here in the fall. I have lugged it all over the city. I have the 486RC2 ballhead with mine.

    Wow...nice....my velbon just isn't cutting it for me these days....I think you just made it harder for me next to decide what next I have to purchase....I am stuck b/w a larger format printer(11X17) and a better tripod.
    Not sure what to do but seeing this you definitely have swayed me toward the tripod.
    Mind you the printer is cheaper in the long run as far as having prints done....decisions... decisions..... arrrrggggg!
    I am more torn now!

    It's a great tool for sure, I have zero regrets with the coin spent. I have always gone cheap with tripods until I saw a couple of young guys working with raccoons using this model...I was sold and the Manfrotto was placed on my wishlist. My previous, now backup model was a sunpak pro costing eighty bucks or so and I got what I paid for . For the price point and versatile nature of this pod I'm just tickled

    Funny thing is...I was looking at an Epson something printer the day before at $369 plus paper and I'm aware of their thirst for ink. I was tied between the two also. The printer I want is close to two grand
