I'm seeking opinions about the most stable contortionist type tripod there is out there.
I'm particularly interested in it being able to overhang or lean over a subject while providing good stability for macro shooting, i.e., supporting a 50D + grip, with a 180mm or an MP-E 65mm macro lens (extended) and flash unit along with micro stage, etc.
It's gotta be stable and with minimum of 'floating' once set and tightened down.
I s'pose I'm after something like the old Benbo's, but maybe lighter.
I'm welcoming all suggestions and opinions on the topic.
Thanks in advance, people!
