As promised, a photo of my two tripods. On the left is the Velbon VTP-815 (wt. 537g). On the right is the Velbon V-Pod (wt. 279g). As you can see they are virtually the same height. I prefer the V-Pod, not just because it is lighter, but it’s more stable with the leg struts and the camera mount is more adjustable, being a ball and socket joint.

Half a kilo made it a bit of a decision to take a tripod. 279g is a no brainer. It’s in my bag every time now.

  1. It says it will take upto 2kg. If you don’t use the extension it’s quite sturdy and stable. It’s probably worth a go.
