Tripod suggestion for my Garrett SS 10x50
Posted 18 December 2012 - 06:06 PM
I need suggestions about buying a tripod for my binoculars, enough to take the 3 lb of the binocular but not too costly. For the adapter I've decided on the Garrett metal adapter.

If you plan to add a 15x70 or even larger bino some day, the 5000 combo would be a better bet with the extra capacity, geared center column and adjustable spreaders for greater rigidity.
Binocular viewing requires more height than many "photo" tripods can provide; check the specs carefully.

Do not need to say anymore and you got the best suggestion as everyone agreed on it
The 5000 is a great tripod for the money. Very stout, smooth motions. It would handle 15x70s without a second thought.

Bhhphtoto also seek a Davis sanford which is very similar spec wise to the 5000, it's still cheaper I think

Thank you for your suggestion, but I am not willing to get any binoculars so far. The next binocular that I'd be getting is the 22x85 but for that to happen I need about 10 to 15 years to reach the full potential of my binoculars, they are that good.
So for now an economical and temporal option is acceptable.
