I was looking at the tripod my 4X5 Anonymous field camera is sitting on, and I think I'd be more inclined to use it if the tripod was lighter. I currently own a Bogen 3221 Variable-Weight tripod, and it is no fun to lug more than 50 yards. (BTW, a variable-weight tripod is one that most of you are familiar with; you may already own one: it's a tripod that gets heavier the farther you have to carry it. )
What would be a good lighter tripod (I know that this is a very loaded question)? I would be interested in one made by a well-known manufacturer, not extremely expensive (range: $100.00 to $300.00). Maybe a wooden tripod??? I am certain that I'd use this camera more if I didn't have to lug around as much equipment.
Thanks to all who reply.
With best regards,
