I just bought a GItzo gilux tatalux (4 section tripod) at a thrift store. It came with what look like a g275 head (there is nothing written on it except "Brevete", which just means patented). It look like this brand is really good today. Was it ever so? It look like an old version that predate the internet, since I cannot find much information about it.
How should I "test" it to feel safe before I put my camera on it?
I bought is because it look like a really nice travel tripod (really sort when folded, and not heavy).
