Peter West Carey, over at the Phoblographer, has put together a well-researched list of recommended tripods for the holidays. With options from $3 – $1550, he’s got tripods to match every budget and photography style.
Over in the “Lovers of Carbon and Lightness” category, we have the CT-214 and CT-414, which Peter says he “fell silently in lust with… while traveling through Peru last year.”
You can also find Induro in the “Super Small” category, where our Hi-Hat is featured. “It’s small enough to go everywhere with you but strong enough to support up to 200lbs,” he writes, “…plus, it’s kinda sexy.” Don’t make us blush!

Photographer Peter West Carey has published a review of the Induro PHQ3 head and CT214 tripod. He tested the gear on a trip from his base in Seattle to Lima, Peru. From the capital, he made his way to Cusco, Machu Picchu, and the rainforest before returning to Seattle.
Carey’s review is fairly comprehensive and lists specs for both the tripod and head. He puts both pieces of Induro gear through some real world outdoor photography, including inverting the head so he can do some macrophotography on the ground in the forest. Carey has also posted the below video, which demonstrates the panning of his Induro test gear.
Carey concludes with good things to report about his review models. “Returning the Induro PHQ3 head and CT214 tripod tugged at my heart,” he writes. Citing the light weight of the carbon fiber tripod and versatility of the head, he explains the use of both was “comfortable and easy.” Thank you, Peter.
