    Dan — Have you (or anyone else you know) tested this against the more expensive options like the Gitzo 1542T? I’m curious whether this is a case of “get what you pay for” or not. I find the 1542T to be amazing in terms of stability, but I’ve always wondered whether the newer low-cost options like this one work just as well.

  • Dan Bailey says:

    Doug, yes, as with anything else in life you get what you pay for. Don’t expect the Vanguard to compare to the pro quality stability and durability that a Gitzo offers, but as far as affordable and lightweight carbon fiber tripod options for general or occasional pro use go, the 225CT is one of the better quality models I’ve seen in that middle price range.

    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.
