Here's one for those of you with serious camera equipment, the rrp is £285..... I already own the 700DX and can vouch for it being an awesome tripod - absolutely rock solid (and available at the same price as this - its bigger brother). It's a high quality pro tripod (comparable in quality to Manfrotto or Giotto) and comes complete with a heavy duty 3 way pan and tilt head with quick release mechanism, capable of holding upto 6.8kg of kit......
The PRO 780 DX is capable of supporting the weight of professional digital cameras and heavy telephoto lenses up to a 400 mm f/2.8. This complete tripod offers professional photographers and advanced amateurs the strength and stability they need, while its size and the use of A.M.T. alloy make it lighter and more portable than many professional offerings from other manufacturers.
A tripod should be solid and easy to use, so you spend more time concentrating on your photography than you do your equipment.
The PRO 780 DX black tripod makes setting up easy with secure, speed-release leg locks, gearless center column and 3-position, adjustable angle leg locks allow easy set-up on uneven ground or steps. The PRO 780 DX center column is actually two threaded pieces that unscrew to convert the top piece to a short column. This combined with the adjustable leg angle locks allows the tripod to be lowered to just 15 inches for very low angle or macro photography in the field.
