7D Filmmaker Looking to Upgrade Tripod...

Well it's time to dish out some cash and replace that old Silk that got me through film school. Just wanted to see who is using what and get some recommendations. Definitely looking for something lighter weight that is easy to transport to locations.

I use a manfrotto outdoor tripod legs that collapse quickly with a 501 HDV head.

It all depends on how much you outfit your DSLR. Matt Box, rails, etc. can add some bulk.

Still using the same Vinten Vision 3 I've had for about seven years. The head is perfect for anything as light as just the 7D or 5D MK II all the way up to full Cinevate rig with Xoom audio, 8" monitor, mini LightPanel, and boom mic.

I've never been terribly crazy about Vinten legs, but those guys can make some terrific heads.
