    Tripod for Hasselblad

    A simple question: What's a good tripod for a Hasselblad? I'm after portable/lightweight, but able to hold the heavy camera.

    I'm looking to spend not much more than $200/£150. Thoughts?

    Thanks

    If you can compromise on the weight, I use a Manfrotto 3021B Pro, which isn't very lightweight, but fits your price range and is sturdy enough for my Hasselblad. Even with a head you can probably come in close to $200.

    I'll second the above. It's aluminum so not very light. But it is built well and priced right.

    It's the same as the Manfrotto 055 which is tripod enough for 6x6 cameras that aren't flipped around much. I use one for a Bronica SQ-B and Mamiya RB 67 with no problems. If you're on the short side, a Manfrotto 190 would also work.

    I use an old Leitz Tiltall with no issues. With the square format I don't have to tilt it for verticals obviously so the camera sits centered over the tripod. I've had no issues with lenses upto the 250mm.

    I use the least expensive Feisol from Kerry Thalmann. You will not do better for the price and Kerry is a great guy to deal with. I have the smaller Kirk head on it and it is a nice combo. If $200 includes head, then the Manfrotto tripods mentioned are the best bet.

    for my Hasselblad here, no problems at all, yet, isn't that lighweight, but very solid and sturdy.

    My initial thoughts are if you want a easily transportable, lightweight, stable tripod suitable for a medium format SLR you're going to have to be prepared to pay much more for it than £150 - $200 for it.

    Manfrotto 055, heavier than what you want but it will keep your camera secure.
