Looks like my Gitzo 2531. Looks like one of their heads, too (though I don't like their heads or especially their plates at all).

Might be the lighter Series 1 version...

It's just the standard gitzo quick release head isn't it?

Looks like a basic Gitzo series 1 -- maybe a 1531 -- with a Gitzo head.

Not sure about the pod but the head is a Gitzo 1277m with Gitzo`s proprietary Q/R. I`ve had one of these for a few years and would still be using it but for the weight. It`s smoother than the smoothest smooth thing in Smoothville.

Yeah but is it smooooooooooooooooooooooooth ?

Actually if its that smooth then for a 139 (as listed on their web site) that seems dam good value

AFAIK it`s no longer available new, having been replaced by those "sideways" ones. They can be found used for 50 or so. It`s an overlooked gem and way better than anything else at that price point. If it was just a little less bulky and a bit lighter I wouldn`t use anything else. It`s big brother, the 1377 is also often overlooked and can be found for bargain prices, although it too is bigger and heavier than it needs to be. IMO.

Just had a look and WEX still carry the 1178M in stock . And its 115 . Those sideways ones are a fair chunk more expensive

To OP: Sorry to hijack but I couldn`t resist

Until evidence is provided to the contrary (other than from maker`s publicity) I hereby claim the Manfrotto 190/Gitzo 1177 to be the world`s strongest portable camera support system in the history of the world. Ever.
