When the wife and I went to New York, we of course passed by the Adorama Store on 42 West 18th Street. This is one store that I try to go to, after the Apple Store, every time I go to the Big Apple.
Anyway, while going around the store, I chanced upon the Benro A-158EX aluminum tripod. It has some heft and it folds down nicely to a manageable length fit for traveling. And since the wife and I have a summer trip looming around the corner, it'd be nice to add this to my collection. But, the main difference between this and the other tripod I am using is that, with the Benro, you would have to bring your own head, whether it's a ballhead or a pan-and-tilt head. Also, there is a carbon fiber tripod available but the price is way higher than the aluminum one. At this point, I would have to settle for the aluminum one.
It would be nice to have this for an extended period so I'll be able to put it through its paces more thoroughly. Well, it's every gadget maven's dream to have companies sending them gadgets for review. For my upcoming birthday, I wish that I'll be able to reach that level - to earn companies' trust that I will be able to write a review of their products for them.
