Very good tripod for DSLR camera plus 100-400mm lens

Over all, a very stable tripod, even with its center column in use! I do have two issues that bother me; 1) for the price range of this tripod (almost $1000), Gitzo gives you the cheapest cover available (almost paper-like), seriously they need to step-up their game.

This is a heavy duty tripod that is very stable. The legs are strong. I am using it with all my lenses, but especially with my 600mm legs with a Wimberley head. Works great, you will not be disappointed.

This is one of the best tripods I have ever owned.<br />It oozes quality and is absolutely rock solid. Obviously this comes at an eye watering price but you will be amazed when you get it in your hands.

This is my second Gitzo tripod. The first one is the light, travel variety, lovely for long hikes, but struggled under the weight of a 400mm f2.8 lens and the weight I had to add to compensate for wind. In all fairness, that is not what it was designed for.

I had a manfrotto stand and used it alot to take landscaping photos. On occasion the wind would make the image slightly out of focus. With the Gitzo you can hang a bag full of rocks for extra stability.

I work as a landscape photographer and photography tutor and do a lot of long exposures on sea shores. A good tripod is essential and Gitzo make the best although they are overpriced IMHO and the lightest Series 1 range don't stand up to rough handling at all.
