I have a D5300 paired with a freebie tripod. When I brought it down under last year, the tripod (with the d5300 attached) almost fell on a few occasions when the wind blew strongly. My heart literally skipped a bit upon seeing it get wobbly - by wobbly, I mean like literally on the verge of losing balance.
I certainly wouldn't want anything to happen to my camera. This time, I'm heading down under again; near the coastal cities. Expecting relatively windy conditions. Would like to ask if there any one has any recommendations for a good, reliance tripod?
I heard that there are some tripods which allow weights to be attached? Would you guys think this is suitable? It can't be excessively heavy - I have a habit of lugging it around (whether overseas or SG), so if it may be quite a bit of a hassle moving around with it.
My pockets are not very deep but I'm willing to consider anything reasonably priced relative to the D5300. The last thing I want is for the camera to drop while on a trip.
Would greatly appreciate if you guys can give some advice.
