Several days ago I’ve received a new tripods, some of them are video tripods, some – photography tripods, and even one monopod.
In the next several weeks or months I’m going to make several reviews of them.
All the tripods are manufactured in China by DIAT. Shall we give a change to Chinese manufacturers?
One of the tripods I’ve received – is a carbon tripod CK-324 with SH-30 ball head. I will leave it with me for personal use. Here is some images of the tripod during the first test-drive paired with my Pentax K20D and Hanimex 35-105 mm f/3.5 manual lens.
I will test it to compare with higher level manufacturers’ tripods. Obviously the price tag of DIAT is much lower than the same products of Induro, Manfrotto or Vanguard, but my goal is to have a look is Chinese products are capable to compete with already established quality tripods brands.
