I'm pretty interested in getting a Manfrotto 190 and a ball head for my G2 as I'm tired of my filmsy old Tripod. But I'm wondering whether it's an overkill. Will it seem a little too much if I bring the tripod outdoors for shoots with a relatively tiny camera on the head?
I like the Manfrotto cos it is also stable enough to do small studio work.
Also, what's the diff between the 190 and the PRO version? What does the horizontal shaft do?
