How tough's your tripod?
« on: April 15, 2010, 04:59:44 PM »
Love my Gitzo.  It's tiny, featherweight and gorgeous.  But frighteningly expensive.

But Gitzos are tough.  Plenty tough.  Anybody think another brand would only need "a little repair" after this? :) http://www.telegraph.co.uk/earth/wildlife/7588680/Polar-bear-steals-tripod.html

    A good pic to sell to Gitzo!
    I can just imagine the bear getting back to it's burrow (You did know they live in burrows did'nt you?) and thinking "Now what the £*&% am I suposed to do with this?"
