Just over 40 years ago I bought a Leitz Tilt-all. It was strong enough, sturdy enough, versatile enough, light enough, and, though expensive at the time, is still used on a weekly basis. I've looked at others since I bought it, but I never find one that I prefer. I know Leitz sold out some years ago, but I think the tripod is still made and available. Oh, when I
bought a small digital point and shoot, I bought one of those "inexpensive" Manfrotto offerings. It turned out to be a
piece of junk - never buy a tripod with plastic clips to hold the legs - and lasted less than six months.
