Our smaller tripod is a Velbon Sherpa with PH-157Q single screw clamp and plate mount which weighs 2.0 kg

The other is a Manfrotto which came with a double screw clamp set up which would be better for scoping shorebirds as you can loosen only the vertical axis clamp. It is heavier at 2.9 kg (so is the 20-60x "big" scope). I can't speak about camera usage as we both used to hand hold our 500mm mirror lenses.
