The best is Ries tripods. they have several types and for 8x10 or larger you have to go with the big boy. Exposures are usually 1/2 sec to mins and a light weight tripods is going to get you nothing but movement. My friend puts a pan head ($600.00) on his tripod for the 8x10 and complains about vibration. I use the Ries head which has a 6" square platform and I put a thin piece of cork on top so keep any rotation form occuring when the 8x10 or the 8x20 is tilted.

    I wrote the post above yours mentioning the use of Ries J 600 and A 100 tripods with appropriate heads.

    Yes you did and I totally blew this one all together. Sorry my mistake in reading too fast.

    P.S. I love the area where you live. my wife and I use to live in Brecskville and her dad worked in Bath.

    I use a ballhead - a huge, heavy UniLoc head, no quickrelease, and a wooden tripod (a Stabil Tredel). Except when I use the really big, old and brittle cameras; then I use a Gandolfi Minor tripod of the same vintage as the cameras (around 1910).

    You are getting too much sun on your head in Florida Michael. Come back and visit the land of no sun. I read where we have as many cloudy days as Seattle.
    You will return to Florida quickly. Either that or lets talk short term house swap next winter.
