Awhile back I did an episode on the affordable tripods. You may recall that in the end the Davis and Sanford Tripod took the cake and came out on top. Well B&H has a discount for a one of the D&S tripods.
The all-terain version is now $164 which is a $75 discount. They are also giving you a 3 wheel tripod dolly to boot.
Here are the other D&S tripod models that use the FM18 head I swear by:
Combined with the FM18 Fluid Video Head, the Davis & Sanford ProVista 7518 Tripod provides rigid support for those who need strength more than versatility in height options. It assembles to its working height very quickly thanks to a 75mm claw ball and self-aligning quick-flip leg locks.
The Davis & Sanford PROVISTAGR18 Provista Grounder Video Tripod is a professional tripod system featuring the FM18 fluid head. This system offers 75mm bowl leveling and an 18 lbs capacity.
The Davis & Sanford PROVISTA18 Riser is the ProVista, combined with the FM18 Fluid Video Head. This system provides rigid support for those who need strength more than versatility in height options.
