60-250 lens question
I'm on the lookout for a new tripod with about 12-15lb capacity for that lens just for extra stability.
Take a look at this one

this is the one I use and it is great. I too had the Slik Pro Mini before and it was not near as stout as this tripod. Case head and Tripod weigh 3.36 lbs. and is 16.5" long.
Yes thanks, the Benro Travel Angel is on the shortlist, as is a Giotto Vitruvian, and there's also a Vanguard one (cant remember which)
If the budget allows for a CF tripod then, the Benro (2types), Giotto Vitruvian or(other one?), Vanguard (something?), Fiesol (CT3?4?) and also a 3legged thing "Brian"or"Eric".
...actually that's not a very short shortlist is it.
With a $1K+ worth of heavy lens and $1K+ worth of camera, you definitely dont want a flimsy support.
