  • […] While there are quite a few tripods in the 3 lb. and above range, there are not very many quality choices in the under 3 lb. range. Most tripods that are super light weight just aren’t very sturdy. You might as well try to stack your camera on top of a set of twigs, which is essentially what you’re doing if you get one of those cheapo models. However, if you’re on a tighter budget, check out these 3 slightly more affordable lightweight carbon fiber tripod models. […]

    Nice post. I have fallen in love with my Promaster T525P Carbon Fiber Tripod. I hated carrying my old (heavy) tripod to shoots but this thing is super light and easy to use. The killer feature is the monopod option. Just un-screw one leg and you have a monopod! It’s not cheap, and I’ve had other gear from promaster that I’ve not liked – but this product seems to continue to surprise me.

    Sure thing Dan – I’ve been reading for the last month or so and have found something out of everything you put up. Thanks for spending the time.

    I have read you new book “Behind the Landscape.” I could not “put it down” meaning that I kept at it because each photo you presented/analyzed was interesting and informative. I am trying to develop an eye for composition (both the scene and the light).

    Thank you! The examples you present and the suggestions are very helpful. Purple Mountains, McKinley River and Wonder Lake are fascinating.

    You have done it again! Another triumph.

    Your generosity to share, the clarity of thought and concise explanation thereof is brilliant. Perhaps I should also mention the beautiful photos and the talent necessary to produce them.

    Thank you, Dan.
