What makes a twist lock tripod so unique?
One possibly unique feature is that the leg locks have a secondary locking system that prevents you from loosening the locks and completely removing a leg section. Many photographers new to twist-locks often have anxiety filled moments when they accidently disassemble the tripod while trying to extend it!
How to Buy a Land Surveying Tripod? Wood, Fiberglass or Aluminum?
When purchasing a Construction or Surveying Grade Tripod there are several different options to chose from, the material, the head, the clamps, and these are just standard options. The type of surveying tripod you need to buy will depend on the instrument it will support and the work conditions or environment. With this article, we have put together helpful information to assist in deciding what the best options are to meet your needs.
Remember, the most important option on a land surveying grade tripod is the thread size. This will determine if the tripod is compatible with your instrument or not. Most surveying instruments and tripods have a 5/8 X 11 thread which is standardized throughout the land surveying equipment industry.
Aluminum tripods are usually inexpensive and lightweight, making it ideal for light use when set-ups are often changed. Aluminum is not affected by humidity. Being a metal, aluminum can slightly expand and contract due to temperature changes. Aluminum tripods provide the most ideal for setups that only last a short period of time, say an hour or less. Aluminum tripods are more economical, light-weight, and also long-lasting. They are ideal for leveling applications.
The Tripod Head
The tripod head is just that, it's the top of the tripod and is a surface for the surveying instrument to rest on and mount to. There are two head options available, dome or flat. This is mainly just a difference of preference. Both heads will do the same functions and work well with most surveying instruments. Circular dome are ideal for compensated instruments and lasers. A flat head surveying tripod is without a question the most popular tripod on the market today.
