This question will probably show my ignorance on this
subject, but I am looking to buy a lightweight tripod
and had all but decided on the Gitzo 1127.

I was in a camera store today and saw a Sunpack something
or other.

The Sunpack is a little less weight, not much, and has a
head and quick release.

The cost of the Sunpack is $25 (USD), the costs of the
Gitzo without head is $412 (USD).

After tax, I'm look at a $400 difference. I have a heavier
weight Bogen for city use.

My question is: Is it worth the extra cost?

TIA.

Steve
