I currently have a MF 190 XPRoB + MF ball head, all weighs in at about 2.3kgs
Looking for something lighter. Recently was shown a Gitzo mountaineer 6x something (1530?) in store. 1.3kgs , 4 section legs, reasonable height (higher than 190). Removable centre column (which I will, saves 120g).
Also looked at a gitzo ball head to go with it. All up in the store it was abut $1600NZ :O Sure I can find this cheaper online!
Liked the Gitzo stuff tho, twist locks, sealing, the ball head with pano rotate option etc.
I'm shortish, 5ft8/172cm, so anything around 130-140 would be fine I think?
Looked on the Gitzo website and theres a lot of choice just for them! So finding it tough to find what I really want so looking for options.
I shoot 7D and will be used mostly for back country landscapes, looking to go 5d2 and will be using 17-40L to 24tse to 70-200 and 400/5.6L, so nothing too heavy in SLR terms.
I've seen some gitzo mountaineer stuff on ebay for about $600ish (NZ) I think...
