I have two tripods that were purchased quite a few years ago, an Abinar 9900 video/35mm W/fluid head, folds down to 22" and extends to over 5ft. My other tripod is a Valbon Videomate IV with smooth as silk fluid video head. It's a big tripod thatfolds to 28" and extends to over 6ft ( yes, you'll need that much hight sometimes ). Last weekend I went on a photoshoot to the S.F. JapaneseTea Garden to take advantage of the beautiful scenery with the cherry blossoms in bloom. Packed the fz20 and the smaller Albinar tripodand gotto the gardenat 8:15am. With about an hour of shooting time before the visitors to the garden become so numerous thatit made it difficultto fire off a shot without getting someone in the frame. I went to work, needless to say I fired off close too 100 shots in the space of an hour before the crowds and another 100 in the next 3 hours, dodging the visitors to the garden. This would not have been possible without a manageable tripod with a smooth fluid head that allowed me to quickly pan for the right shot. out of 200 shotsabout 150 were photographs I would be proud to show. I could not have done it without a good, FAST, sturdy tripod. Just my 2 cents.

P.S. Bigger is better:!:Tripod that is.:lol::lol::lol:

I wanted your opinion. I use the tripod mostly inside, close. The few times I've used it outdoors, I'd say it was fine. It's got 7 adjustments on it and it's stable. I was just wondering what makes for a good tripod.

I would say thats it. If it makes you happy its a good tripod.

The Hamma tripods are pretty good and also relatively cheap, I'm pretty pleased with my Gamma 71.
I would recommend it to anyone if they can find it (I got mine in Israel)
