Gitzo G1548GT Mk2 Carbon Fiber

Review Date: Feb 24, 2008 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $759.95 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Rock solid, meant for tall people, less bending over. Best made tripod, period.
Cons:
Twist leg clamps are arkward and a pain to use but once locked, all is forgiven. I think it's been discontinued. Sorry! Try Gitzo GT5560SGT.

This is the steadiest tripods I have ever seen, it just doesn't move once set, a tripods highest praise. I use it with a Wimberly Head and a Canon EOS 1DS Mark II w/ Canon 600mm f4 IS USM lens and it weighs approximately 25lbs., a load to carry on ones shoulder. I also use it Arca-Swiss Monoball B1 Ballhead for my other lenses, another great discontinued product. A little over-kill for my smaller lenses but I'm willing to carry this 8.2lb. tripod, it's that good.

Pros: Super High resolution pictures rivals Hasselblad 6X6, unbelievable! 48.7 mb tiffs files. Wow! Feels like a camera should in your hands, good ergonomics.
Cons:
Needs large Hard Drive for computer.

I love it, wish I could get the Canon EOS 1DS Mark III though 21 mega-pixals, but I can't afford it yet. People complain about the weight of it, but I guess they don't know weight is. How about lugging it in the woods with a Canon 600mm f/4 EF IS USM lens, 8.5lb. Gitzo tripod and Wimberly Head for 4 miles in search of little tiny birds that don't sit still. Any of my other lenses I consider light compared to that even my Canon 300mm f/2.8 EF IS USM, no sweat. So the camera in my opinion is light. Stop Whining, "It's too heavy".
