Hello Fuji users, i have to buy a new tripod for my X-E1 (actually have a Manfrotto Compact Light) with 18-55 lens. I read very good feedbacks about Genesis tripods. Plus they have great price with high quality!
Anyone use them and can recommand them? My choice is the A3 kit that have BH--34 ball head, the attachment is Arca-swiss type. Budget around 100-150 Euros.
I recently bought a Velbon M43 tripod. Now I know from my research that Velbon has different tripod models in different regions. I was searching for a lightweight tripod and found this model in the Asia/Middle East region. It weighs only 880 grammes (1.94 pounds), which is amazingly light for an aluminium tripod. It suits me very well, it’s light, tall and relatively sturdy.
However I’m looking for two things:
1) An End Hook for hanging a bag or weight on bottom of the central column. It comes on the Velbon Geo in some regions.
2) An Arca Swiss (or equivalent) mounting plate. I cannot find this on any Velbon tripods in Europe or the Middle East. I can find an adaptor plate that will fit, but I’m looking for a more elegant solution.
So the questions are:
In your region does Velbon sell spare parts for tripods as I’d like to get an End Hook for a Geo and adapt it for my tripod?
In your region, does Velbon have Arca Swiss heads? I have searched the internet extensively.
Like I say, Velbon Tripod model vary widely from region to region; so I’m hoping that other regions have a solution.
Hi fellow Fuji users.
Have any of you been to Thailand? I'm going late October and trying to decide on what camera and lenses to take.
I have an X-pro2 and X100T, my lens choice is
27mm pancake f2.8
WLC for X100
I also love using old nice glass
takumar 55 f1.7
Ziess 135mm f3.5
Nikkor 105mm f2.5
Having never been to Thailand before I dont know the light and a bit concerned about too much light for wide apature's. Part of me says take the X100T with a polarising filter and be done with it. Less to worry about, get stolen/lost. The wildlife looks great though so a longer reach would be good
