Sorry, this was wrongly x-posted in the General forum.

Right now, for portraits, I'm using what I have on hand, a Gitzo Mountaineer 1228 with a Markin's M-10 ballhead. Problem with this tripod, is it's cumbersome & time-consuming lowering & raising of it's legs via the screw-to-tighten leg locks. I really hate this setup for portraiture. I'd like to get a tripod that adjusts up & down quickly & without much effort. What would you recommend?

Steve, you won't believe what I am using and it was cheap. It is called
a Monfrotto tripod and a Promaster ball head that is so easy to get the camera out.

Hope this helps. I bought mine at Ritz Camera. I love it and it is really sturdy and holds an X with a 70-200VR.
