I appreciate that there's few tripod threads kicking about but I can't quite find what i'm after...
Which is recommendations for a carbon fibre tripod and with a nice sold locking head up to the value of around £250.
The biggest/longest/heaviest lens i'd use would be a Canon 70-200m f/2/8L mike on my Canon 5d mkIII
I also have a 24-70ml which literally fell out of my old tripod whilst attached the the head that locks in. Admittedly it was a cheap tripod, but it was only the strap wrapped around my hand that stopped £3k of equipment from hitting the floor hard.
So, i'm going to invest in a new quality tripod and head which will hopefully be the one and only i'll ever buy.
Thoughts very much appreciated folks
