I know this site probably tends toward action photography, but I'm looking at tripods for a 5D Mark II. I'm trying to decide if a CF 4 section Gitzo
is worth $250 more than CF 4 section Manfrotto
I know at this level of equipment, $250 may not seem like a lot, but that gets me a pretty nice start on a RRS ball head, plates, remote release, etc. Is the stability/reliability/ease-of-use going to be really noticable?
Primary use will be boat interiors (lower light = needs tri) and shooting boats underway with longer lens from land.
