Thought I'd start a thread discussing what tripods people use as it's something that could help others decide if they are looking to buy a new one. I currently have a Giottos VGRN9225 which is a compact tripod. One annoying thing is that it maximum height, however it is lightweight and pretty stable apart from in windy weather. I previously has a Manfrotto 190xprob which was brilliant but a little bulky. I do miss it however. Wouldn't mind finding something in between.
