  • Thank you for sharing this beautiful article. I also have a hub of tripods in all varieties, qualities, and in different prices. I also have the best lightweight travel tripods.

    Finally, someone stealing/copying an idea from a Chinese company, haha! (Benro is Chinese, Manfrotto is Italian).

    Good review. This pushed me over the edge. I had independently narrowed my tripod choice to the Element vs the Roadtrip and was torn between the two.

    Element Pros:
    Taller (66″ vs 61″)
    Same exact weight even though taller
    Cheaper by $15
    Italian company (vs chinese)
    Manfrotto is mfr of Gitzo the super expensive brand

    Roadtrip Pros:
    Shorter when folded (15.4″ vs 16.1″)
    Much better Amazon reviews (682 x 4.5 star vs 17 x 3.8 star)
    more and cooler colors

    Since your comment is fairly new, I thought I’d let you know that the Element is a re-branded Sirui (ie Chinese manufacturer). Depending on where you are the latter might be a better buy.

    Thank for the comment, Al. I’ve long been a fan of Manfrotto products and the brands they distribute. It’s good to see them release a decent budget tripod in this class. The Element has a nice clean design at a very good price!

    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.
