    The tiltall or the old Husky QuikSet are both good. Also, used Gitzo tripods at good prices show up from time to time.

    If you like wooden tripods there are a few options on the market that are not too expensive.
    I tend to procrastinate on stuff. One of these days I'll do something about it.

    Both the Tiltall and Manfrotto 3021 look good. I'm struggling to find a 3021 but there are some new Tiltall's at BH which look great and affordable. So currently leaning towards to Tiltall. There is a used 3021 at BH but think I would prefer something new. Links to both below.

    Thanks again!
    Just say NO to the new Tiltalls! They're a major disappointment. You should be able to find a used one on Ebay, or get a Manfrotto.
    Forget about the new Tiltalls, please!
    And if anyone should offer you Tiltall 4x5 film holders, run away!

    Berlebach is a nice option for a wooden tripod. Otherwise I like the SLIK 700DX - I have had one for about 15 years, no issues. I use it for a Sinar Norma 13x18 at the moment, so it is going to be more than enough for a Chamonix 4x5.

    How about a used Gitzo Series 3? Parts are readily available, the design is proven, there are a ton of available accessories, from flat plates to center columns. I have a whole bunch of tripods. My Series 3 is the one I use the most.

    What Peter said. The requisites for your camera are not exceptional.

    I have one of these, and it would be right sized for your camera. Not too expensive, either.

    If your LF camera/lens has good rise and fall you might be happy with a leveling head or even no tripod head.

    A Gitzo series 3 carbon fiber weigh 4 lbs (long legs, no center column) and will hold almost any 4x5 but is light enough you would use it with an SLR. My favorite all around choice.
