I picked up a tripod this afternoon…MANFROTTO! The Manfrotto 3…9…4. It’s got legs, baby! It’s everywhere! It’s all over the place!
But does anyone know the difference between the Manfrotto 394 and the Manfrotto 293? I would have assumed the 394 is better, if for no other reason than it’s lighter and, well, the number is bigger. However, the regular price is MK293 is actually 30% more expensive than the 394. And if the consumer world has taught me anything, it is that if something is 30% more expensive, it is very likely 30% better. 🙂
I have a week to decide before the MK293 sale is over. In the meantime, I christened my t-pod with a little cloudy timelapse. It’s shot at 15s intervals, played 300x the original speed at 20fps. The frame rate is much smoother than before at these settings.[youtube:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CFMu_aJMpO4%5D
