This season is bringing many new things: some chilly weather, a new Photo Plus Expo, and some new Induro news.
New, new, new.
I did, and I don’t regret it! I even learned a few things. I especially enjoyed the an Induro review from Photo Focus‘s Scott Bourne. His review is titled “How Induro Tripods Got Me to Make the Biggest Gear Switch of my Life”, and is a good and informative read. Here are some excerpts:
I got my hands on one of the first Induro CT214 -8X CT-Series tripods and wow I am very impressed. This is a well-designed, well-thought-out, super strong and stable tripod. Induro makes its own ultra-light 8X layer carbon fiber legs for this tripod. They include an oversized center column lock and enhanced leg angle locks. What’s really impressive is the non-rotating leg sections. This makes set up and tear down a breeze. While this particular model isn’t strong enough to support my longest lenses, for everything else I do, this 3.3 pound unit will more than do the trick. I’ll have to grab a CT414 for use with the big 500, 600 and 800mm lenses.
Back to the CT214 – Induro didn’t forget anything on this tripod. They include a bubble level, spring-loaded bottom hook (for counter weight), triple closed cell comfort grips on all three legs making it very easy to hoist this bad boy over your shoulder. They also provide interchangeable rubber feet and stainless steel spikes, a tool kit and deluxe carrying bag and strap.
What’s most exciting about this tripod is that it packs up to less than 21″ folded and extends to more than 61 inches extended.
In honor of Fall, and newness, I thought I’d post some photographers I’ve been thinking about lately, who’ve been making some eye-grabbing work. Here’s an image from each. Check them out, you won’t be sorry!
Have a great day!
