What's the best light but sturdy tripod for MFT?
Jul 31, 2012

My trusty old Velbon tripod broke down during vacation after more than thirty years of faithful service. So now I need to find something to replace it. My knowledge about the development on the tripod market is next to nil so I hope for some good suggestions here to ease my search.

My requirements are that it should be as small (when folded) and light as possible but at the same time sturdy enough to manage my E-M5 with 100-300 and above all robust enough to handle some wear and tear without falling to pieces.

What would be your recommendation?
