Very good deal on Velbon 540 carbon fiber tripod

Just to let anyone interested know, Buy.com has the Velbon EL Carmagne 540 Carbon Fiber Tripod with a 3-way head on sale for $130 with free shipping. It's a really good tripod, and pretty much half price.

Note that the maximum load is listed as 25 lbs on Buy.com and Amazon, but it's only about 9 lbs according to B&H.

Good find, and interesting discrepancy regarding the max. load rating.

FWIW, Velbon's web site lists the max. load at 4.4kg (9 lbs).

Seems, they removed that offer. How sad. I have that tripod, though with a Novoflex ball head and it simply superb. Even if you pay more, it is a worthy investment for a lightweight travel pod.
