Advice Appreciated

I would like to replace my current tripod. It seems 'ok', though I have never tried anything else so I having nothing to compare it to, and I suspect it may be more suited to still photograpghy. I believe it is a Manfrotto #028 head and #029 legs (or other way around...I'm not at home, so I can't check). Right now I have a Canon Gl2, but I would like to move into HD in the next year or two. So is there a tripod in the $1000-$1500 range that would work okay now with my Gl2 and in the future with an HD camera (atleast for awhile). I shoot mainly interviews, confrences. a little bit of outdoors.

Thanks for any advice.

Hi Rob..........

Think that a thorough scrute of this thread may be in order:

paying particular attention to posts #8 & #10.

This might make your selection criteria a bit more defined.
