Does tripod's load capacity include the use of stone bag/weight bag too? should I consider the weight that I may hang from the tripod as part of tripod's load capacity?
Are there are any "ultra-portable" tripods out there? I'd like to find one for backpacking that weighs 500 grams or less, but none seem to exist... there are tabletop tripods that weigh considerably ...
Due to weight restrictions I cannot take my tripod on my next foreign trip. What are the alternatives?
