A wile back I wrote a review about the C50i tripod also from Rollei. With the start of the backpacking/ hiking and biking season I was looking around for an even lighter and more compact table tripod, something slightly sturdier than a Gorilla Pod. I own a Gorilla Pod and it has it’s uses too.
When I bought the Rollei C50i, I purchased the item on impulse, at the time that tripod was on discount. I ended up using it regularly and enjoyed it’s attributes and that led me to writing a review at the time. Rollei C50i.
With the late spring coming to central Europe and our north-eastern part of Switzerland came the wish to explore my neck of the woods some more.
I was looking forward to explore especially the ‘Alpstein‘ a northern section of the Alps, that is quick and easy to reach from St.Gallen the city where I live. I got myself a new pair of hiking boots and I was ready to hit the trail.
