I have the Manfrotto Befree Carbon, Love the compact size and weight for carrying but am not major impressed with the stability at full height,
found myself not extending the legs too much and almost laying on the floor, Hope this helps
Just got the Canon media Storage M30 from ebay with spare battery, charger and case for £70. inc delivery and so far well impressed,
Park Cameras have just sold the 80gb version for £129. i missed it be 1 hour
Hope this helps
As already mentioned as a newboy I dont feel qualified to pass judgment especially since all the whoha :nono: about the 100 post business, it makes me feel like a comment such as "I like that,well done" could be taken as just trying to build my post count.
But i DO like that :)
