Got a manfrotto doesn't seem stable enough

Hi all,

I recently upgraded from a d90 to a d800. My new camera on my Manfrotto190XProB tripod with Manfrotto 496RC2 Ball Head doesn't seem to be filling me with confidence. I am mostly use the D800 with a Nikkor 16-35mm, taking landscape images 90% of the time.

I think the combined wait of the camera and lens is perhaps too much for my Tripod, no falling of Tripod yet (thankfully), though it seems like it wouldn't take much.

I know people can pay a lot for Tripods and recommend that you do, I guess what I want to know for now is if my existing setup should be ok for general landscape images, or is the advice to get something more sturdy, in which case do we have any good recommendations. I would sacrifice weight for sturdiness to be honest.

Budget wise, I hope to spend no more than £400, though could possibly p/x existing setup or sell on ebay.

Any help appreciated.
