so im looking to change my now broken 190 aluminium series manfrotto(rusted out bad lol ) with a gitzo
ill be doing some hiking on occasion and some seascapes/landscapes
ill be putting a manfrotto 804rc2 ballhead on it.
ive looked at the series 1 travelers and while nice and light seemed a little to light and unstable.
im using sony a99 and 85mm prime on occasion for studio which is about 1 kilo and 16-35 cz which is about same weight which ofcourse will be landscapes
problem is thier are just way to many choices, and many choices of the same model type is see to.
i was thinking something in the 25xx series will be good as still light and more sturdy. just wondering others thoughts
i wouldnt mind going low ( seen some of the 25xx series can go down to 6cm )
my height is 6 ft 1
just wondering if someone more experienced with tripods can help me narrow the selection down
