You most likely have found yourself down the path of trying to figure out which tripod will work for you and you have landed on the LP Poseidon Series tripod from Leofoto, and now you are wondering how much it costs.
Well, in this article we are going to go over some of the background of the LP Poseidon Series tripods and then we will cover the deets of each tripod in the series.
You can expect to pay $379.00 USD up to 539.00 USD for the Poseidon series tripods The price varies depending on whether you are purchasing just the tripod or if you are purchasing the tripod as a kit with a ball head.
Let us quickly cover what makes the LP Poseidon Series tripods unique. The Leofoto LP Poseidon series is water and sand/dust proof as well as corrosion resistant. These three attributes should help back up the point that this tripod is designed for use near water.
The reason for water resistance is to keep the moisture out of the joins and crevices that are in every tripod. Being waterproof naturally leads to being sand/dust proof. This means that it is maintenance free saving you time and energy on cleaning and maintaining your tripod.
Corrosion resistance is achieved with the tripod feet and components that hold the feet being titanium. Titanium is one of the toughest metals known to man that is why we can say the Poseidon series is corrosion resistant. The reason that the rest of the tripod is not made out of titanium is that typically when shooting a scene or subject near water it is only your tripod feet that are submerged in water.
There are two tripods in the Leofoto Poseidon series. We will cover the details of both below, but before we get started there are a few things that are the same on both tripods.
