There is a new blog that I am now following: ThePhotoTip.com.
Brian posted a video review of the Benro Travel Angel tripod that I purchased a couple of months back.
I like it very much. I like its sturdiness, compactness and ease of use. I also like the fact that I can convert it into a monopod.
At first, I thought that I would have preferred clips to extend the legs, but Brian shows a trick that will win me over.
I do have two things that bother me:
- The base is difficult to unclip from the head, maybe it just takes time to get use to the mechanism;
- The other thing bothering me is the fact that the screw that holds the camera to the mounting piece does not have a D-shape to help you tighten it; you need to use a 25¢ piece.
