    Thanks for the replies - I'm using a Mamiya 645 pro, for those who have asked. I should have mentioned that. My goal is to upgrade to a Hasselblad 500. I don't currently use long lenses (nothing over 150mm)

    Thanks!

    Like Noble, I use American made Tiltalls. The ones labeled Leitz, Marchioni, and Star D have all served me well for decades. The new imported ones have a poorer reputation.

    I have a set of Feisol legs with a Kirk BH3 head. Works great for my hasselblad and 4x5. Highly recommend both. Can't imagine anything better.

There must be extremely high quality, durable tripods for 1/4 the price of the aforementioned alternative? I'm starting to shoot mainly landscapes and often carry the tripod all day. I have a cheap, heavy tripod that just isn't working. Far to heavy and the head is crap.

    Thanks!
    Tiltall, the Leitz or Marchioni versions. About $70-$100 used, good for up to 4x5.
