I have a tripod dilemma and hoping that some of you experienced folks will assist.
It should :
- Be able to carry a D700 + grip as well as a mounted Flash and a 70-200 Lens. ( don't have all of this but wanted to spend once and get it right)
- Fold down to portable levels ( or fits a bag like the lowepro flip side 300/400aw or vanguard up-rise 45/46)
- Be able to do low angle shots
- Be sturdy and have good grip on solid flat ground or outdoors
- Have a bubble level
I may want to use the tripod for Landscape, portraits, and low angle shots.
My budget i have kept it anywhere between 150$ and 275$
Would appreciate if someone could help me.
Thanks in advance.
Ps. I have a Nikon tripod that came with the camera and its very flimsy, it doesn't hold still even if i tighten the knobs really tight. and if i shoot it vertically it slips back to horizontal.. I am scared that it will drop my camera.
