Tossing up between a Benro Model: C-257 M8 and a Benro Model: C-297 M8 carbon tripod.
The 298 is only $15 dearer and 23gms heavier and has a centre column that pivots off to the side for Macro etc. so it seems a no brainer to go for it. But i no nothing about them.
Any one have an opinion?
These are also 3 section and there is a four section model of each available which is only $15 dearer again and folds down a bit smaller but is a bit heavier, for which reason i lean towards the 3 section tripods i think even though they are longer - again any opinions?
