I was searching through the web a few weeks ago and found a nice light tripod with a ball head for about $300. Amazingly it weighed around 400g.
For the life of me have forgotten the name (think it might have started with a V) and I didn't save the link.
So can anyone suggest a similar tripod. I anticipate using it for hiking so it must be very light.
It will be used with my 7d + 17-70mm weighing a total of about 1.3kg.
