    try 330dx... sprint pro doesn't work so well if you are going to use d50 with a rather heavy lens. i got this 2 cam tho i haven tried putting on a heavy lens but i don think it will support well.

    Whatever the brand, whatever the model, buy a good one. It will last you a long time.

    Shld be more than enuff to cater to your needs.

    Try the Manfrotto 190ProB with a 486RC2. Total setup shld be less than $300.
