Re: pdog hunt in some nice scenery

Thanks guys.

The tripods we use are made by Bogen. We also like their pistol gripped head for quick and easy aquisition of target. They are very sturdy.

goodgrouper,
you forgot to mention that we were really doing this to feed the starving golden eagle's of the area. firing a rifle was just like a dinner bell to them

actualy the tripods and heads are made by manfrotto of Italy and distributed by bogen they may have a different distributor where you live ,but they are worth checking out. the best IMO

Re: pdog hunt in some nice scenery

I have been using a large Leup tripod and another made by Dynamix or something like that, its a photography equip company. I have had similiar problems with wind making the image in my 20-60 80mm Swaro shake.

GG and UncleB, what is the weight on you all's tripods??? Do you think a heavier one would dim down the vibrations or are we just screwed in a decent wind??

Thanks
Steve

Re: pdog hunt in some nice scenery

Oh, I thought we were out there to watch 7mmrhb whack another poor, unsuspecting rodent at over 600 yards with his hornet again!! How far was it 7mm, 635?

Unreal! That hornet is only supposed to be a 150 yard gun according to D. Petzal you know. You had better call and tell him he was a bit off on his yardages!

Re: pdog hunt in some nice scenery

If there is enough wind, then nothing can keep it from shaking. Ours are good to about 7 mph before they get shaking. The tripods weigh around 6 pounds I would guess. Never really weighed them.

Re: pdog hunt in some nice scenery

I saw some interview sometime with the RealTree guys video team. they said that for them to get a truly stable video platform they use a 30 something pound tripod. Now of course their video equipment weighs a lot more than the stuff we use but you have to strive for perfection.

I guess for now it doesnt matter cause for the life of me I cannot figure out how to video through my swaro spotter.

thanks for the info and again nice pics

steve
