    Question Bogen 3068

    i saw this Bogen 3068 at a pawn shop near by and i was wondering if anyone has used this tripod with a 3066 video camera head for an 8x10 camera (for my 2-D) they are asking $275 (i was going to offer a lower price) could anyone let me know what they think all opinions and suggestion are welcomed. Thanks

    I think that's a bit of high price for an old Bogen 3068 tripod. If you make an offer don't go over $125 give or take a few bucks. There are soooo many older larger stick sets out there so you can find better deals.

    You can usually pick up an older Bogen-Gitzo-Majastic or maybe any make of wooden surveyor/movie/still tripod on Craigs-list(with a diligent daily check in). I would look there first. The fact that you live in Cali you should surly be able to find a less expensive (less than $275 anyways) tripod for your 8x10.

    Just my opinion so take it w/ a grain.

    Another good tripod is the bogen 3051, it's really heavy (12lbs) but I got one a couple years ago for around 100$ I've used the 2D with the 3021, those are cheap and readily available, but you gotta get a sturdy head to balance out the weight. Good luck!
