I have a velbon cx440 and have had no issues. Tripods have to be sturdy when you put your camera on it. If you have a huge (eg. 200mm f2.8 or larger) lens then I would go with something heftier.

Velbon Sherpa 600R here. I have no issues with this one as it has lots of inherent weight and the one touch tilt and pan control is excellent. Center strut also inverts and lets you get way down.

Obtainable at a good price unlike Manfrotto and Benbo. All depends on your budget and uses of course.

Teko, yes for that low stuff, without doubt, that Velbon is a great choice. Fortunately for me, I rarely take shots from down there. When I need to, I'm on my stomach with a small bean bag under the camera - not nice when the ground is wet or cold - LOL

Have fun!
