    Hi there,
    I can buy a Foba alfae 3leg tripod. It is supposed to be really good. It does come witouth a center column. But that does not have to be a problem.

    Can anyone tell me wether this tripod is a steal for 100 dollar, or not...?

    Hope to hear something soon :wink: I have to decide today. THANKS

    I indeed bought it.
    Will pick it up tomorrow. I will compare to the bogen 055 (poor tripod) and my gitzo studex. I still think a center column can be handy. But I will find out for myself. I will be going LF so than the foba is perfect anyway off course.
    thanks game

    $100? You thief! Anything Foba makes is good stuff. I worked in a studio with a Foba studio stand. Beat the you-know-what out of the Calumet the other place I worked at had. Dean
