what do you think? sturdy? i dont like the quick release of the 3030 head
didnt like the quick release head on it and the fact that it holds 11lbs is misleading. the legs were like toothpicks
i want to see a bogen 3001 in person to see how sturdy it is but no one locally carries it

what about a 3028 head and either a 3011 leg or 3001bpro leg?
the 3011 will extend much further than the 3001. it will be almost as high as the 3001 w/o the center extended.
ive got an older 3011 and its very sturdy and i have never felt limited by its height. I'm using a 3126 head which is about as heavy as the legs lol
i'm kind of leaning towards the 3001bpro and the 3028 head. it should be about $179 shipped
money i shouldnt spend but i want a tripod
now i want honest opinions guys. none of this telling me what i want to hear. honest experiences
dude hit it up on ebay. Tripods don't go bad if they are used..especially these bogen ones....very solid
ive been on there literally all day long. i've bid on 2 different ones but within the last 20 minutes i think i've made my mind up. i'm pretty sure i want the 3001bpro b/c of the horizontal abilities but i'm afraid that it'll become unsturdy when i have to extend it all the way up. hence the 3011 b/c it will go to the full length of the 3001 w/o being full extended
I use a 3021 so I couldn't give you an opinion on the others you mentioned. The 3021 extends high enough for anyone ~ 6"0" w/o hurting your back and it can go as low as a few inches for the macro crew.
so you have the 3021 pro that has the horizontal ability?
comes in handy when I do wheel shots at night.
What head is on your 3021 pro?
although technically I have a 055prob
Bogen 322RC2 pistol grip
For some reason when I read 57" total with the top extended I was thinking it was higher than I'd ever need. This is making me think I may return the 3001 for a 3021, but the 3001 gets here today so we'll see.
the 3021 is 57" w/o the center column extended =)
With it, it's about 70-75" iirc (plus the height from the head).
Yea, I know. I knew the difference before I ordered, I was just thinking the 3001 would be plenty high, now i'm a bit concerned. I have seen the 3001 in person though and the 3021, and I liked the size and weight of it better, I'll probably be carrying mind around a lot. So I did like it. But we'll see.
At any rate, it'll hopefully be here in the next couple of hours
B&H seems to have a pretty good return policy so worst case scenario i just suck it up and send it back
~ the 3021 is a half pound heavier but when folded, I think it's about 6" shorter. You get use to the weight after awhile, especially when you factor in the 1 lb for the head and 3-5+ lbs for the camera/lens.
Yea, and I know this. We'll see i'll play with it a bit today when it gets here if it becomes problamatic I'll just send it back.
i just got my 3001, and needless to say, I wont be returning it
i went to wolf camera just a second ago and looked at the 3021bpro...
is the 3001bpro even close to being as stable as it is? the poles on it were huge
