In Topic: Tripod for P1000?

15 August 2020 - 10:15 PM

not sure you seen this you may have to go a little more then half way down the page

to see how i fixed the gap problem between the plate and camera


 having that gap between the camera and plate may cause damage or pull the threads out of the camera.

all so added a dot site real cheap.

the tripod was cheap and very heavy which is a must for this size camera.

a lite tripod if you bump it the camera tripod has a good chance of tipping over,

a heavy tripod like i have can handle a hit pretty good and i all so have a gimbal which is stiff,

moving a stiff gimbal on a lite tripod will move the tripod all over the place

 It looks like the seller is trying to keep the bundle price low by substituting a bad memory card.

al most all company's do

thanks just asking for anyone with hands on experience on what they use.

i really want to see the item in person not on line, what you see from a image and what you get  might be nothing more then plastic junk from china.


i was thinking to use 

Construction Tripod transit

and just put the ball head on it, all transit levels ive seen are very well built, i weight about 200 lbs and i used to jump on it both feet to plant it in the ground, never seen one break.

with the p1000 im more worried about being top heavy and tipping over from the wind or by it getting bumped a little bit.

ok new update, im looking for a tripod that can handle lot of weight and the tripod it self needs to be heavy, i dont want it to blow over or fall over from top weight.

looking for a tripod that some one can post a link where to buy for around $100


im now adding this to it and im not sure if i need a ball on the tripod or it comes with it.

im adding.
