OOH, check out this great review of Induro’s C414 tripod in the The Digital Journal of Photography today!
There are even pictures.
Like the pricey rival, the C414 uses the usual three-position lock for adjusting the leg spread, up to a full 80 degrees from closed to nearly horizontal. This allows a good deal of versatility while maintaining excellent rigidity. Also similar is the anti-rotation legs and rubber faced twist-locks for the leg-sections. They’re dust and moisture sealed, but more importantly, they lock off positively and very firmly. There were no accidental slips at any time during the test period. Non-slip rubber feet can be replaced with the supplied steel spikes.
The small pack-down size and reasonable weight make it more suitable for location and landscape work than you might expect. But price is the most likely limiting factor. All the same, if you’re looking for a solid tripod, capable of supporting a decent load, then the Induro C414 really should be on your shortlist.
