Well my several year old Optex tripod has been looking a bit flimsy of late. With a load limit of 1.5 kg the Canon 600D and even the small zoom was about on the limit.
Then I was passing Ted's Cameras at Garden City (Brisbane) today and saw a tripod and head kit from Manfrotto. A model 290 (actually 294A3) tripod and a 804RC2 tilt and pan head. Seemed a real solid set up and a load capacity of 4Kg seemed about right for the moment. Price was about right too $179.95. So I snapped it up.
Tell me I got the right gear (and a good deal).
