I love this tripod.
iFootage is a manufacturer I’d never heard of until spotting Thomas Heaton using one of their tripods in a video with a built-in levelling bowl, something that’s a massive help for panoramas in particular. A bit of Internet sleuthing later, I found iFootage who have more of a background in video tripods but had just released a pair of lighter, photography tripods: the Gazelle Fastbowl (which Thomas Heaton had) and the Gazelle Uprise, which I ended up ordering as it has a higher maximum height.
The Uprise instantly replaced my pricey Gitzo tripod. It covers all the pluses of the Gitzo but adds the levelling base as an integrated feature. Excellent.
