Thank you for the suggestion! How do you think this tripod compares to these two? http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/controller/home?O=&sku=439930&Q=&is=REG&A=details and http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/131427-REG/Slik_615_315_Pro_700DX_Tripod_with.html

All three tripods seem to be well-liked by most people. But a handful of people are saying that the Manfrotto legs are unstable, while nobody has said that so far about the two Sliks.
To be fair, the Manfrotto does have a lot more reviews so there's a higher chance of there being a bad one, so I'd like your opinion on the matter instead of going by the reviews alone.
