    Both my tripods can spread their legs almost horizontally, and they both
    have reversible columns. One is a Manfrotto 190B, the other has lost
    its makers' label; it dates from the '80s and may have been an 'own
    brand' from Jessops or some other store. Both are hefty lumps of metal
    but by no means as massive as a studio stand.

    Yup! I also have a Slik PRO870 CF, a lighter weight than my Manfrotto
    30218PRO which also has a reversible column. However, the Manfrotto is
    a tad more flexible, but the Slik will still do the job Jack requires
    of it.

    From what I have described, will any Manfrotto tripod suit my needs? It's
    rather difficult to see all their attributes from what is given online.

    With thanks.

    Far better, I think, to use my aluminium easel -- I can strap my old tripod
    head on to its extendible column, and it has just the right leg splay (two
    of them further apart than the third) and leg height and leg girth for my
    Thanks for the replies, anyhow :).
