    why not get 190B? it is anaodise to black, thus anti-rust.

    Hate to say this but Aluminum doesn't rust as it's a non ferrous metal. This is regardless of the annodised colour, be it silver or black. It corrodes in time regardless when exposed to salt though.

    Get the 168RC Ball Head. It cost the same, and is much better.

    for me:
    1. How high it can go? (150cm without extending center column)
    2. How low it can go? (ground level, flat on ground)
    3. How heavy is it? (2kg+- or 3kg+-)
    4. Price?
    5. Locking system
    6. The feel of it in hand

    end.

    My choice:
    Gitzo G1224, but I end up buying Gitzo G1340 as I can only afford one tripod, and not much different in price.
