Best tripod under $1000 for Red Scarlet?

Any opinions on the best tripods for Red Scarlet cameras under $1000? Many thanks!

If you are using lightweight lenses from the 35mm SLR world (Canon, Nikon, etc), look for a used Sachtler FSB 8. If you are using heavier lenses, you probably won't find a tripod with head under $1000 that can do the job.

Thanks! The heaviest lenses I'm using right now are the new Sigma cine zooms (3-4lbs).

I'm using a Manfrotto 504HD fluid head together with a 546BK Manfrotto tripod. It handles up to 7.5 kg (around 15-16 lbs) very well. At the moment it's priced at 700€.
