Oben AC-1310 vs. AC-1410 Tripod Comparison

Review Navigation:


There's about a million different tripods out there to choose from. You can spend $1,000 on one (not even including the head) or purchase a tripod for as little as $10. I've even received one or two for free with the purchase of cameras.

With all the choices out there this review will take a look at two reasonably priced, well-built tripods. The products are two models, quite similar, from the same brand so if you're looking at jumping in and buying a tripod this might help you consider some of the available features.

This review covers two tripods, both available at B&H Photo and Video:

Tripods aren't just for holding a camera. Personally I use tripods to hold my flashes more often than cameras. Whatever your use for a tripod the fact remains the same: When you need one, you need one.
