HVX200 Tripod

Can anyone suggest a good and reasonably priced tripod for the HVX 200. I have been working with a 30 lb camera for the past 10 years so a small fairly lightweight camera is new to me.

Moved to our camera support forum. "Reasonably priced" is a highly relative term. The $500 price point is considered the low end of this market. I think you'll find other threads on this topic within this board.

Studio Monthly just covered this in depth in February's issue:

They give best bang-for-the-buck to the Cartoni Focus head. Cartoni has a total of 5 or 6 sets of sticks (1- and 2-stage in either aluminum or carbon) that go with the head, plus all the usual accessories.

Street price at a decent discount dealer is about $1200-1500, depending on aluminum or carbon. I can't say I'd recommend getting anything much cheaper than that.
