    Manfrotto is quite a popular brand.. there is Gitzo and Slik brand too...

    Abt which tripod to get. You need to know the max weight the tripod is going to carry. The max height might be impt to u. Weight might be a big consideration if u intend to carry it around a lot.

    Go to their official website to see their max supported weight, height and weight.

    U need a head to go with the tripod too.

    Do a search using "tripod" in this forum and u will find lots of info and some price too..

    Wow, this is a pretty broad question. You might want to check up a couple of fairly recent threads about tripod selection:

    as well as search the rest of the forum archives, as binbeto suggested.

    As far as tripod brands are concerned, if you want a cheap but good tripod, go with Slik. Otherwise, you won't go wrong with the likes of Manfrotto, Gitzo, Velbon, etc, but these may be overkill if your requirements aren't that great. Do your homework before making your purchase and do feel free to continue to ask any specific questions you may have here; we'll be more than glad to help you out.
