Default Looking for advice on buying a lightweight tripod

I just bought a new compact (Sony HX30v) and am looking for a tripod I can use with it. Obviously it should be sturdy but I don't want to have to carry a 12-pounder with a two-ton capacity. Something lightweight and around 65" tall would do nicely.

Any advice would be appreciated.

I bought a Vanguard 263AT which comes with a pretty good ball head. I have used it to support my A700 with a Sigma 150-500mm lens. It has served me well. I have not minded it's weight carrying it around state parks ETC.

List price is around $200. I got extra QR plates from EBAY.
