    I really don't know which to go for...
    My ex-tutor / present class mate has the 190xpro, It seemed sturdy enough.
    however, I wonder if the giottos is worth the extra £50, the legs can go all the way round more or less and it can be used as a monopod, but is it as stable or better than the 190xpro?

    I already have a Manfrotto Monopod but it would be handier to have a tripod / monopod to carry instead of both (if needed to switch.)

    the manfrotto monopod seems really well built, just wondering about the giottos as I have no history with them.

    Responces will be appreciated!

    Bump - Need to know ASAP

    Got £210 burning a hole in my pocket lol...

    (well.. £310 if i really want to spend money just now...)

    I need a good tripod.
    I think both would probably suffice, and I think giottos will be the best as it is costier, and you usually get what you pay for in photography.

    but with all the extras it provides, there must be a failing point, i.e. steadiness, weight it can carry (will only really be 20D + a lens, heaviest is probably my 85mm and longest would be 75-300mm.)
