Thought I’d gotten a new tripod, but no.

I didn’t like the new Alta Pro2+  in person after all the research I did as much as I did on paper.  Video is 15 minutes of my thoughts on the two tripods.  I’m sure the same things that bug me, you may like and vice-versa but I really look to these videos when I’m looking at getting new gear and wanted to give back.

I just LOVE some of these.
