Scott Myers says
I think a tripod is like a lens. You need the right one for the situation. You can get by with just one, but it may not always be the best fit.
When I got mine, I went with Aluminum. Part of that decision was cost, part of it was I wanted a heavier tripod for shooting lightning.
I have a Manfrotto and I have been very happy with it. Long term, I will probably look at a carbon fiber tripod specifically for hiking.
