The Bogen/Manfrotto 501HDV


The Bogen/Manfrotto 501HDV would be Ok.

Available from, B&H for under $175:

Note that this is not the 501 which has reviewed much better, but it’s replacement (501 is no longer made).

I just picked up a Bogen 3021 professional tripod with a Bogen 3063 fluid head and matching carrying bag on eBay for $166 including shipping. This thing would hold anything as far as I’m concerned.

Just look around (eBay is a great source but B&H is the place to go for new stuff).
