Default Lighter weight legs for D&S tripod

The Davis & Sanford tripod you are buying for $200 has an FM-18 head, which is indeed removable and can be mounted on virtually any set of lighter weight tripod legs with a 3/8-inch fitting. However a much more economical and convenient alternative to buying a lighter set of legs and switching the head back and forth is acquiring a lighter video tripod such as the Provista GR-18 (street price about $165) which weighs 7 pounds total and comes complete with the same FM-18 head as your larger tripod. Good luck and good shooting ! Jason Schneider
