Hi folks,

Despite IPC Media acquiring Trusted Reviews life at that site seems to carry on much as usual. They have just posted a group test of the following tripods:
The Giottos won but if you would like to read why check out the group test here.

Nice review. The Jessops one looks a lot like what I've got although mine's branded Nikon. I guess they all just buy from the same manufacturer and re-badge them.

Bob, thanks for the links and review. I just bought one recently (Induro Tripod) and I really didn't know that there is a lot to consider when getting a tripod and ballhead. An valuable tool. Learning everyday :P

Excellent review article. Still haven't made up my mind yet on what tripod to get.

Thanks for the heads up Bob.
