I am in a position where im planning to sell my current tripod - 055MF3
, and looking at the 190CXPRO3
as a replacement.
My main concern is weight. Initially my current tripod hasnt had much use, but lately have been taking it with me for random shots around the city, where i want steady shots. Its giving me slight back aches when strapped to my Vertex bag when moving around. The 190CXPRO is 800gms lighter, which seems nice but havent had the chance to hold it yet. I can gather that it has a similar rapid center column, which is great as im slowly getting used to my pod functionalities.
So question would be: Am i downgrading my current pod, in exchange for extra lightness? Theyre the same price, so was hoping there are some of you who faced a similar situation like myself? I'll lose money as sellling second hand, but willing to if purchase is justified.
