It's about time to replace my Manfrotto 190go! tripod. The legs are reasonable, but the centre column is rickety, and overall it's too plasticky. And I rarely use the 90° function. I'm looking for something relatively light that I can bring on a plane and on a bike, and walk around with for hours. It needs to hold a slightly heavy geared head and a Canon 5D with a tilt-shift lens, and I intend to use it mainly for photographing architecture. I've looked at Gitzo Traveler, 4 sections, series 1 and series 2, and at the Feisol Traveler Tripod CT-3441T Rapid and a few of their other models. Does anyone here have any experience with Feisol? (I prefer to avoid Chinese brands, but Feisol is, as far as I know, Taiwanese, so it's not ruled out on that account.) Novoflex tripods look nice, but they're expensive, and I've seen people complaining that the quality doesn't quite match the price. Addition. I've looked at the Kaiser Fototechnik Tiltall TC-284, too, but the 20° leg spread seems a bit narrow.
For those who shoot both stills and video, what is your solution for a tripod head? I currently have two separate heads but hate carrying both. I have considered the Manfrotto MH055M8 photo video head but it has such mixed reviews and is a real heavyweight - does anyone use it?
