    just after sunset.

    tripod in water deep enough waves were hitting it (knee to mid thigh high "big"/"strong" waves).

    I find with a tripod of this class, if you sink the feet into the sand, it doesnt even get vibrated.

    Def can recommend the goldphoto for stability :)

    Looks like the tripod did well. Did you need to add any weights for stability?

    It's very nice.
    I must ask - did you take any without the land on the horizon?

    Yeah I had my hand rest on the tripod ready to catch it haha.


    I just sunk the feet into the sand, and I also had the centre column removed at the time too, no extra weights.

    But its already a weighty tripod ;)



    You mean like this?

    I like the 2nd one more than that of the first, but, 1 is still good.
    What tripod did you use??
    I have a Manfrotto 055XDB which is pretty sturdy. But, I don't want to take my baby in!!!
    How much damage will it do?

    No damage, wash salt water off (and sand) with fresh, i never washed mine for over a year and i got a little rusty nuts and bolts, thats it.

    clone of a manfrotto that looks like this:

    goldphoto yh410+yh320c+bag $150 AUD 2007 some time.
