Lightweight Heavy Duty Tripod

by JesseJamesJim / January 27, 2009 4:00 AM PST

I?m looking for a tripod that can support 12lbs, but with the pan head included only weighs 3lbs or less. Do they make such a beast? I?ve searched and searched, but came up empty. Any help would be highly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

After weighing everything that I need to mount, I only need one that can take 8lbs. Therefore, my new requirements are these. Must weigh 4 lbs or less and be able to hold 8 lbs. Think that's do-able? Know of any around like that? Thanks for all your help thus far!
