3 Ultra Lightweight Tripods — 10 Comments

  1. The Manfrotto 737CY is going to be my choice. It’s time for me to upgrade from my old workhorse tripod. The carry weight on this isn’t a big problem, my camera only weighs 3 lbs (less than 4 with lens).

  2. I’m with you. I’ve had my eye on the 737CY for awhile now. It’s definitely light enough for most cameras and outdoor uses and the price is certainly very attractive.

  3. Just picked up a Gitzo 1541 for an upcoming trip to France and Italy and love it. Can’t believe how compact and light it is – hard to believe it supports 15lbs.

  4. Purchased a Promaster T525P about a year ago and love it for backpacking. Super light at 2.3 lbs., 5 section with two piece center column. Sells for around $300.

  5. I would add the Feisol CT-3342 to the list. It weighs about 2.25 pounds and it is about 56 inches tall (almost a bit too tall for me at 5’7”). I wanted a tripod without a center column and the extra added weight, so this was a good choice for me. I use it for hiking and backpacking, and other than being a bit bulky, it works well for me. It is also kind on the pocketbook at about $400 (compared to Gitzo at least).
