  1. Re: Tripods: Is Carbon Fiber worth the extra cost?

    Not really. See Barry Thornton's experiments with light tripods vs hand-held. You'd be surprised. Plus a crappy tripod can give you false confidence to shoot at lower shutter speeds than it can...
  2. Re: Tripods: Is Carbon Fiber worth the extra cost?

    I'm not sure why you would want an illustrator's opinion about a photo book. An art director, designer or even a curator would make sense.

    Yes, a pedestal stand (Arkay, Manfrottto, Foba) is ideal but start at over a grand. And most are over 6' tall. A bit pricey to try something out.
