The Gitzo mentioned above sounds ideal but is very expensive at £223.46 on amazon UK.

A less expensive alternative might be the manfrotto carbon MM294C4 priced at £68.79 on amazon.

It is heavier than the Gitzo but lightness comes at an exponential cost it seems. I havent used this manfrotto but they are a well regarded make. I briefly tried the Manfrotto 680B which is built like a tank but is too heavy for my liking.
