Gitzo G1327 Mountaineer Mk2 Carbon Fiber

G1327_1_
Review Date: Dec 26, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: steadiness/weight ratio is great
Cons:
Price, but worth it if you use a tripod even semi-regularly.

I'm using this with a Kirk BH-1 head and so far it’s unrivaled. I've never used anything so steady excluding some extremely heavy studio tripods which weigh in at around 35 lbs; it allows me to do multiple exposures with no hassle.

I didn't realize how important this tripod was until I lost it for a week (broke the insert on the Kirk head after dropping it, fixed under warranty). Even tightened down and being careful I had slight camera movement with a backup Manfrotto with Tilt Pan head, which rendered it next to useless for my purposes.

Buy this and be set for life or at least a good decade.
