Tripod with a seat attached?
« on: January 13, 2012, 03:03:51 PM »
My attention was drawn to this new concept in tripods.I don`t know if it`s been done before but it seems a sound idea to me.


At the moment the sole distributor is SRB-Griturn and we know how well respected they are.Starting price of £100 for the smallest.


Any thoughts anyone?

Strange.

Fine for binoculars I guess, but seems a silly idea for photography. The point of a tripod is to hold the camera/lens still. If you're sitting on the frame, any movement defeats the purpose of the thing.

And for what benefit? simple enough to carry a folding seat separately, if needed. (I've never heard of SRB-Griturn)

Neat concept, but I concur with fother...seems self defeating. I'd prefer seat separate from the tripod.

Guess this is good for Binoculars for Astronomy purpose.
