I am having a devil of a time trying to find a tripod to fit what I need. I already have a Slik U9000 cheapo that I use for holding lights, sometimes my camera at home, etc. I also have some nice 190CXPRO3 legs (supports 11lbs) with a 460MG head (supports 6lbs) head which is far too light for the Cambo, but great for hiking with my 35mm and/or digital.
Ideally I would like one that is sturdy and inexpensive, and does not weigh too terribly much. I realize out of the cheap, strong, light selections you can only have two of the three, so I am choosing cheap and strong, but not insanely heavy.
My problem here is exactly how much weight do I need to support (I don't have the Cambo yet but I read the camera is about 8lbs without lens, lensboard, film, dark cloth, etc)? So I am guessing about 10lbs. For stability with a large 10lbs should I shoot for something that supports 15lbs or more?
I was thinking about a used Bogen 3046 tripod with 3047 head which I believe is rated at 26lbs(legs) and 16.6lbs (head), but seems more like a studio tripod and weighs 15lbs. How about a Slik Pro 700DX rated at 15lbs and only weighs 6lbs? Any other ideas?
PS. Be nice, this will be my first LF camera, never used one before and desperately trying to learn quickly.
