- Number of sections = 4 or less, but willing to consider 5 (Hogan says that's bad)
- Leg locks = flip levers preferred, but will consider anything
- Material = carbon fiber or aluminum
- Weight capacity = 12lbs or more, D7000 and up to 300 lens in windy desert
- Folded length = < 22" (to fit in my motorcycle side bag, shorter is definitely better)
- Max height = 64" or more (I am 6' and want eye level for landscapes)

the sirui n-2204 (carbon fiber, $405) and the n-2004 (aluminum, $185) ... same specs, different materials ... try searching at bhphoto.com or adorama.com if in the USA ...

a video showing the tripod and twist-lock legs is here:

sirui n-2204

good luck ...

Thanks, confyushis, that's another one I'm looking at....with the Benro. I can't seem to get a good sounding on whether the Benrus, Feisel, Sirui etc are as rigid as the Gitzo.

You're as happy as you think you are.
