Hi, As I was in a small photo fair in Germany, I found out about a tripod company called Induro. In Germany, Induro tripods and Profoto lighting have the same distributor. One interesting fact about Induro tripods is that they cost a fraction of the Gitzo tripods. http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/655216-REG/Induro_472_014_Alloy_8M_AT014_Tripod.html http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/759477-REG/Gitzo_GT1542T_Series_1_Traveler_6x.html Is it still worth it to get a Gitzo tripod ?? Thank you, kind regards, igmolinav : ) !!!
