I am in the market for a new travel tripod, I found one that I think is really good. It is compact and has a good load capacity. The problem for me is that there are two types, carbon fiber and aluminium. Naturally the aluminium is cheaper and heavier, but I am having a hard time finding a real difference between the two, other than weight. Which one is more durable? Is the Carbon fiber one lighter and more durable, or is it just lighter? Is the aluminium one more rugged? I would like to know the differences other than price and weight.
