    Manfrotto 290 (MK294A3 + 804RC2) Tripod Kit

    I'm looking for a bit of tripod advice.
    I'm looking at upgrading from my current light weight travel tripod. It's a Benro A250F which does a great job due to it's small size and light weight.
    But I'd like to get a tripod were size and weight isn't a problem, and it would be 10x stronger, better in windy conditions which we get on the Sunshine Coast.
    I found this one at *removed: under 50 posts on AP*..Manfrotto 290 (MK294A3 + 804RC2) Tripod Kit
    It sells for $180, which seems fairly responable.

    Your thoughs and possible alternatives would be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance...

    Got it (both). Love them. Well sturdy enough for a mid priced kit and very solid feeling.

    I have the 804RC2 and got tired of having to tighten up three knobs.

    Also, when walking through the bush, they seem to snag on everything.

    I switched to a Markins Q10 Ball Head and couldn't be happier.

    Interesing....I have a ball head on my Benro and are inpressed wih the speed that you can adjust and or set up a shot.
    I was looking the 804RC2 as t would give me another option. Yep it would be slower but that that I'm pesonally working on....slow down, take your time.

    Thanks for the comments

    I kept my 804RC2 and have it set up with my macro rail on it. Works well there.
