    While I'd love to own a Gitzo tripod, I don't know that I can justify that expense!

    So I've been looking at other brands.

    Anyone use the Induro or Flashpoint tripods?

    Any major differences? Recommendations?

    Thanks!

    Be aware there are many CF tripods which they simply replaced the aluminum tubes with carbon fiber. Sometimes the stiffness, strength, and weight reduction doesn't outweigh the extra cost tacked on top of their aluminum cousins.

    A start would be to post your price range and the heaviest setup you are planning to place on top of the tripod. Without this information, the recommendations would be difficult.

    (yes... I know CF looks very nice)

    Budget wise, around $300-400.

    The biggest lens right now is a 70-200 f2.8.
