    Default advise on Tripod & ballhead

    Hi,

    I am thinking of getting the Manfrotto 055 ProB tripod with 488 RC2 ballhead to be used with D70 + 70-200mm lens.

    Anyone has any advise ? Any pro/cons for the above tripod/ballhead ?

    Are they compartible ?

    or For the similar price range are there better models out there ?

    Thanks for the help.

    (i) Your proposed setup should be sufficient for your D70 plus the 70-200. Not too familiar with Nikon system but you may want to get a tripod collar for your tele to relieve the stress on the lens mount.

    (ii) Pro: Stable (at least enuf for your above setl)
    Con: Heavy

    I'm using a manfrotto 055 CLB and a 486RC2. Slightly lighter but of course can hold less wt. You can also consider them.
