Light weight for travelling, short enough when kept not in use..... horizontal centre column is good to have but not complusory. Heaviest set up 5D+70-200f2.8
:)

If feisol is good, may not consider Gitzo GT1541T

what is short enough? if you dont mind bending alittle, than can select shorter tripod, also lighter, else can select 4 section tripod, but less stable than 3 sections.

I said short enough to be kept not in use...... for easy travelling, what it has to do with bending?

yeah i'm using hte feisol CF tripod..CT3301 i think. it's one of the older models without the 180 degree leg folding. zero complains to far...been on several trips with it, works as advertised with a 5D and various lenses. legs+ballhead is about 1.5-1.7kg, with the center column attached.

I'm using their entry-level traveller tripod CT-3441B. No complains, my heaviest setup is the Olympus E-510 with the 50-200mm lens, and it holds up very well.

The CT-3442 is the tournament class tripod, so I guess it's a lot studier.

I ordered through their website, very efficient and pleasant to deal with. The CT-3441B comes with the ballhead CB-30, the one with the round release plate.

If you intend to get the CB-30 ballhead, do get an additional release plate to use with the lens with tripod collars - more for convenience.
