I am very unhappy with my current tripod, it's a:
Manfrotto Compact Light Aluminium Tripod

I love how small and lightweight it is, but... where I attach the camera has come a bit loose and any bit of wind trembles the whole shot.

What can you recommend?
I have a lot of strenuous upcoming hiking in the year, so the lighter, the better of course.

Thanks in advance

I'm currently using the MeFOTO Roadtrip. It's very compact, however it weighs slightly more than what you are currently using. Also, the included ball head uses a variant of the Arca-Swiss type plate, which may or may not be compatible with what you are currently using. I have not used the included head, rather I've been using a Manfrotto head with an RC4 QR plate.

Will take a look at that, sounds good to me. Many thanks!

I am currently using this Sirui. I also mounted it with my 6D and 100-400 but not with it fully extended. It worked OK. This was taken using it.
