No matter what type of tripod legs and head you carry (metal, carbon, fluid or ball) they take abuse on a daily basis. I just got a brand new "Dream" tripod to replace it's 14 year-old predecessor. I'm using the occasion to show you how I set up, protect, and maintain it. The same tips and tricks will apply to your tripod and I hope this helps you protect yours. (links are below the break)
My last tripod has been in oceans and on mountaintops all over the world with me for well over a decade, from Kilimanjaro and Denali to Patagonia and the Arctic. I want to make sure this new one lives just as long and happy a life
My next workshop is in Portland, Oregon!
