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.
