"RE: Need new cheap tripod"
Wood tripods like the Berlebach are supposed to be good for vibration damping. Most don't want the weight but you seem to have thought this through and understand the compromises you need to make.I would not go any lighter than that, relatively speaking. In general, it is not a good idea to load a tripod more than 50% of its rated payload capacity. You are already there with the 3032.
