Hi,

I have recently ordered a Canon XL1,

Could anybody reccomend a good tripod within the £100 - £200 region, preferably with fluid head.

Cheers,

Mark

Velbon vel-flo 9. Mebbe not in the same class as Manfrotto, but good value for money. (I use 2 myself)

I have two of the velflow tripods as well, which I also use with my xl1s. It does the job ok, perhaps best tripod I've tried below £100, but you can get good results even with say manual 14x lens etc.
