    Hi all,

    I have a massive old Bogen studio tripod and a big 3 axis Manfrotto head...but it's not terribly portable. I am building a kit that goes with me on a plane. One photographer I know mentioned I need a Gitzo Carbon Fiber 4 section unit...that costs something like $500. No. Hell no.

    So - what tripod do you all use for portable/location stuff?

    i use a 3201 with a 3047 head. i shoot mostly film cameras and this works up into the larger formats just fine.

    my wife uses a 3001 with a 804RC2 head. it is shorter and lighter. a very nice setup for SLR cameras
