I know that there are 1001 threads on tripod recommendations but I have some specific requirements.

I will be mainly be used for travelling so weight is an issue, prefably under 1 kg. And deployment must be fast. I think some brands have special fast deployment tripods right? Example manfrotto neotec looks really good. Does other brands like gitzo have such tech?

My heaviest gear is D700 with 14-24mm so that is around 2kg. no heavy tele lens.

Budget hopefully around $500. max $1k.

any help is really appreciated as there are many tripod brands nowadays. I only know the famous ones like gitzo and manfrotto. I will be leaving in this week so I need to get the tripod real soon.

Since you have such a high budget, you may wanna pop by at CP-P to try out some as they have the widest range of tripods over there.

Manfrotto and Gitzo included ;)

I went bought the gitzo G0541 and G1178M ball head + one extra QR plate. $850 from K13.

My lens + camera is all under 2kg. no flash so I think should be ok.
