Tripods have been here for ages. Probably way before cameras existed. Heck, they were used to cook animals over an open fire. And weight matters. The load capacity on a tripod is one of the first features a tripod lists (along with self-weight and max height).
But, if you can’t find a tripod that is sturdy enough, pipe maker Simplified Building, has a build for a QuadPod. It’s not very portable, not very light and definitely not fancy, but it can carry heavy gear to impressive heights.
If you are asking yourself why you would need such a tall and sturdy tripod, look at the Mega Mast, which is the non-DIY version of this device. (DIYP reviews the Mega Mast here)
