Couple of questions.
1; Just wondered if anyone has experience with Giotto tripods? I can't afford anything better, but don't want to waste money if they're not up to the job.
The aluminium MTL9361B seems to fit my needs.
2; Also having never used a ball-head, (I don't know whether they're strong enough to attach & hold a field-scope or camera & larger zoom lenses without slipping/tilting) Are they as strong/hard wearing as a 3-way?
Would the (15kg) MH1300-652 be fine, or is it better to stick with a 3-Way Head, like the MH5001 ?
Thanks in advance.
