    Sounds like the Pro 400DX.

    Perhaps you might want to personally try out the different tripods on the spot. The Slik models are good value as they come with a 3 way head and are lighter than comparable Manfrotto ones.

    However, I somehow prefer the build quality of the Manfrotto 055/190.

    Well, I personally think that build is crucial in a tripod. I tested the 3 at CP and I think the manfrotto ones seemed more rigid and sturdy.

    However, the manfrottos will set you back a lot more as they do not come with a head. An additional ballhead will set u back $60++ extra.

    if u do travel photography, just get the SLIK tripods will do. anything lighter than Pro500DX shd fit the bill...
    Weight is a very very impt factor, which can indirectly affect the quality of photography.

    Those al manfrottos are killers..
