New Tripod

I have a new tripod, a  MeFoto A1350Q1B Roadtrip Travel Tripod. The “B” in the product ID specifies the color blue.

 

This picture compares the folded-up size of my new tripod vs. my Manfrotto tripod.

New Tripod, Extended

Only 15.4″ when folded yet 61.6″ extended, my new tripod weighs 3.6 lb and can support up to 17.6 lb.

I love the blue splash of color!

I purchased this tripod because I wanted a smaller, less heavy tripod to accompany us when riding the motorcycle.

New Tripod and Time Spent with Friend

I recently purchased a new tripod, the Manfrotto 190XDB with Manfrotto 390RC2 Pan & Tilt Head. This is a very nice tripod and head outfit that feels rock solid. I am quite pleased with my purchase. Previously I had been using the Vivitar VPT-120 tripod, which is ideal for compact point-and-shoot cameras and camcorders. When shooting with a digital SLR, especially while using a telephoto lens, I believe that the Manfrotto tripod is a much better choice. I can relax now when using a tripod. I no longer worry that the weight of my camera will cause my tripod to fall over or that my camera will snap off the head!

I put my new tripod to good use today. My friend, Linda, and I visited two parks in our hometown of Warren, PA — Betts Parks and Crescent Park.  I used the tripod to take pictures of Linda, as well as one picture of the two of us.

I like Linda’s butterfly necklace and earrings.

The Allegheny River and the multicolored buildings along Pennsylvania Avenue create a beautiful backdrop at Crescent Park.

One of Crescent Park’s attributes is the fountain in the middle of the park.

Linda and I both liked this expansive hydrangea at Crescent Park.

From Crescent Park, we went to Applebee’s Restaurant for lunch.  I enjoyed the few hours that I spent with Linda.  It was good to catch up on each others’ lives. We haven’t gotten together much since early Spring. We had a good day together and agree that we should get together more often, as we enjoy each others’ company very much.
