    Bogen 3021 with leg wraps and either an arca ball head or a wimberley, when useing my large lenses, I also have a 3047 QR for it, that gets used with the 6x6 gear,holds well and is sturdy, have used for medium and large format work, I also have two of the old very large Tiltall tripods which are rock solid and quite reasonably priced on the used market, I have one with the orginal 3 way head and have modified one to accept aftermarket heads., but I would have to say my 3021 gets the most amount of use.

    After much deliberation I just ordered a Bogen 3001 and a 3030 head for my birthday (Happy Birthday to Me!!!).

    I hope that it works out OK!

    I also use a Manfrotto 055Pro tripod in black with a three way "standard" head.
    I find it very steady even in strong wind carrying my Hasselblad 501CM but light enough
    to carry on my back on treks.
    I got it from Athens, from the representative of Manfrotto:
    Αλεξάνδρου & ΣΙΑ Ε.Ε.
    Ορμηνίου 9, Αθήνα.
    τηλ. 210 7236847
    The whole set of tripod+head cost me about 160-170 euros.
    It is highly versatile and of great construction quallity.
    I also got a carrying lash and a padded bag, from the same store.

    I use the Bogen 3021 legs with the 3030 head, it works great with my Mamiya RB67.

    I've got a Giottos 9180 and a Manfrotto 329RC4 head. Not the lightest combination. The tripod comes with a built-in head that might be good enough if you use a WL finder. Price here in Canada is less then $200 Canadian for the tripod so it should be well below your lower limit of 150 Euros. The head almost cost me what the tripod did.

    I use the manfrotto/bogan 3021 w/ 3047 head and the 3001g with the ball head that uses the same plates as the 3047. The 3001 g has the foam leg wraps and is painted green (I suspect the green paint makes it less visible to the colour blind wild life that I don't shoot). I use the 3001 when travelling by plane otherwise I prefer the the greater stability and control of the 30021/3047 combination.

    I also use a black Manfrotto 055. The centre post is short (only 8inches I think) since I never raise the centre more than an inch. The ballhead is Manfrotto 308RC. It has a quick release built in.

    The legs have been wrapped in pipe insulation secured with electrical tape. This is for 2 reasons: (1) holding onto the bare metal in anything less than 12 deg celcius will suck all warmth out of your entire body and; (2) for padding carrying over the shoulder.

    I have used this for 35mm and MF.

    I use a Manfrotto 055 with a manfrotto 029 head for 35mm and 6x6. When using 5x4 I fit a Linhof pan and tilt head with a manfrotto converter plate 120. This converter plate changes the thread on the centre column from 3/8 to 1/4 inch. I have not mounted My Kardan GT in a strong wind yet so am unsure how stable this combo will be in unfavourable condtitions.

    I would recommend actually handling the various brands,I own several brands but Manfrotto and Bogen are my favorites.
