Tripods…for Sale or Rent/Rooms to let…fifty cents

For some strange reason I was thinking about Roger Miller’s song “King of the Road” when I was trying to come up with a headline for this post.

Yesterday I picked up the new Canon 5D MKIII camera. Then when I got home I discovered that the Really Right Stuff L-Bracket from the 5D MKII didn’t fit the new camera. My wife wasn’t too thrilled about that, as I had told her that the camera was the only thing I was going to buy. To make a long story short, she suggested that I should part with all of the backup tripods that I have and don’t use. So here are four tripods that I have for sale, all are in excellent condition.  If you happen to be interested in a old beat up tripod, I have one of those too.

    Ahhh this brings back memories. When I was five this was my favorite song, I would belt it out and snapping my fingers, and didn’t even have a clue what old stogies were…in fact I didn’t know what most of the lyrics meant.

    Dang me, Hang me,
    They oughta take a rope and hang me.
    Hang me from the highest tree.
    Woman woncha weep for me.

    Now roses are red
    And violettes are purple
    Sugar is sweet
    but so`s maple syrple
    Amen Brother Amen

    Richard are you a little bit of a Roger Miller fan? I just imagine seeing you breaking into song when you read the title of this blog!

    I bought the Manfrotto 190QCB years ago. It’s heavy but solid. I have tried various other “travel tripods” but none of them preform like my 190. It took me a long time to figure out that it’s worth the extra weight I highly recommend it!!!!!!

    A fan I am, man.

    Westminster Abby,the Tower of Big Ben
    The ruddy red cheeks of the little children

    Everything about Roger seemed happy
    You could not be otherwise..
    And, Yes I did break out in song as I read your blog.

    I have a carbon fiber Manfrotto 055PRO4 tripod with Manfrotto’s 498RC2 ballhead. You can see the tripod here –

    The tripod has 4 section legs which collapse to about the same size as the. The 055 also holds more weight and expands quite a bit taller. Its great for taller photographers (I’m 6’7?) or those having to work with heavier lenses.

    These are excellent tripods and a great bargain.
