    2.6 pounds is getting better, but the Gitzo is a full pound lighter and is rated for the same amount of weight; 11 pounds.

    I use this one with a light 4x5 camera. It is very solid and extremely lightweight:

    Yup, I was eyeballing the Manfrotto 460MG as well.

    Being magnesium it weighs a paltry .95 of a pound, but only supports 6.6 pounds. With a 4x5 Wista, wouldn't it be doable..? The head would be rated for 6.6 pounds at its most extreme range of movements, so wouldn't it be solid with a field camera that's used pretty close to horizontal most of the time, especially if the camera and lens are well below what it's rated for..?
