Sunwayfoto T1C40T Carbon Fiber Traveller Tripod on the beach
Sunwayfoto® made its debut in the tripod market almost a year ago, in October 2014, by releasing a small Aluminium tabletop tripod the T1A10 as described in the relevant Article.

As I had mentioned therein, they had already declared their intentions with the announcement and exhibition of a range of Tripods consisting of tabletop, traveler and classic models, made of Aluminium and / or Carbon Fiber.

With a lot of tripods makes coming from China nowadays, Sunwayfoto has chosen to differentiate with some unique characteristics but also by taking their time testing and altering designs, before releasing the final products into the market.

Last month (August 2015) was a busy month for Sunwayfoto engineers and stuff as they prepared the release of not one but three new tripod models simultaneously.

Desmond to Release own Brand Carbon Fiber Tripods Soon

Have you seen a dens tripod forest before?
Well here is a sneak peek on a factory production floor somewhere in the Far East showing hundredths of Carbon Fiber traveler tripods with a Desmond label.

The label says "Desmond DCF-432 Carbon Fibre" !
Meaning that the first Desmond tripod sports large diameter 32mm top leg section tubes.

It seems that at Desmond want to introduce their tripod label in a market segment with very few, maybe only a couple other competitors who offer reverse folding traveler tripods of this caliber.

The extra capacity and torsional stiffness of a 32 mm tripod, offers a compact 180° folding traveler solution for even larger and heavier camera / lens combinations.
