But if photo or video is your hobby and you’re invested, there’s a chance you’ll want something made of carbon fiber to bring the tripod around more easily. At a certain point, the gear that makes you use your other gear more often is best. And some people will absolutely benefit from upgrading the tripod or making it easier to carry.
