Tripod Recommendation

If you're in the market for a tripod, I strongly recommend Bogen-Manfrotto. I bought a lightweight tripod from them about 4 years ago and carried it all through Europe. It works wonderful.

The real reason I recommend them, though, is that a small part on it broke last week. I contacted Bogen-Manfrotto, and despite the model being 4 years old, they still carry all replacement parts. They sent me a schematic, had me contact their parts department, and I ordered exactly the part I need. $7 later and I'll have a functioning tripod again. I think the ability to repair things is invaluable so I am very glad to see a company supporting their product like that.
