I have just been given a CULLMANN 3300 does anybody have any experiance with this model?
it apears to be a very sturdy stand with a removable head that can pan.

... I know the tripod in question but the reviews suggest that there is not much between any of them. If you buy a solid one it need to be light if it is going to be carried a while .
I use a tripod quite a lot and in hindsight I should have paid more attention to the practicalities of the tripod when i purchased mine . How easy does it set up/ turn / pivot - how quick does the shoe release etc? Will the build allow it to slip into the pockets on the side of my bag or do i have to carry it seperately?
It is all very well trying them in the comfort of a showroom but when you are out in the cold/wet - trying to balance 3 things in your arms whilst setting up the tripod quickly to catch a shot - you need one that is on your side - not one that acts like the proverbial deck-chair on the sea front.
There are a few tripod carriers out there but I have yet to find one that genuinely works well and allows you swift access to the tripod when you need it - so my advice is try it out for yourself in the showroom - dont just let the sales guy show you how easy it is to work - as he is not the guy that has to lug it 10 miles on his back - just in case you see something that you want to photograph ..
