Hi all,

Looking for a good light but sturdy tripod for my m43 camera.

I have some options, I was wondering if you have experience with them, and if you have alternative suggestions:
1- Velbon Luxi L II
2- Vanguard Nivelo 204BK
3- Sirui t005 + c10 head
4- Sirui t025 + c10 head

No. 2 is the cheapest smallest lightest, but also least sturdy AND does not come with a quick release plate.

No. 3. is a bit more expensive and heavier.

No. 1. is next up the list, but sturdier, with a good quickrelease plate. But it is also heaviest

No. 4 seems to have it all, but working at low heights is not as straightforward: the elevated center column is fixed. That also looks like it is not as sturdy, but I am not sure, it is said to support a lot of weight. Its light as well, but most expensive.

Any help would be appreciated!
