So, in my ideal world, I would like a tripod that's:
-made out of carbon
-isn't too long when closed up (compact!)
-doesn't weigh a tonne.

-can go down quite low to the ground (incase I decide to shoot macro in the future)
-has a load capacity that can handle my 100-400L
It doesn't have to be tall cos I'm pretty tiny (1.52m!!)

I have a friend who uses a Gitzo carbon tripod with 40D + 100-400L. The legs open out for low to the ground shooting.

He's on a trip through the end of the month, and if you haven't decided by then, I'll post the Model # when he returns - probably early next week.

I was impressed at how light/compact it is, yet, can support the 100-400L!

regards,
