    There should be a thread or two somewhere in here that had quite a few posts, if you do some digging back a little.

    yup.. someone did mention a thread not too long ago.

    Good sturdy and stable doesn't always go together with lightweight... thats unless you spend some $$$. How much are you willing to spend?

    I do like some of the Gitzo carbon fibre stuff but no way would i spend the cash.

    Picked up a cheapo tripod for $7 at Micro Center the other day. It -is- light. It's no pintle mount but if all you're putting on it is 35mm it'd be fine.
