I have read the guide to buying a tripod but am still unsure of what tripod or ballhead to look for. i know that i can find reviews out there about the tripods in my range but i want your opinions about which tripod is best for me.
Budget: $500 (include tripod and ball head)
^ is it too little for tripod and ball head?
Camera: Canon 30D
Lens(future, heaviest one i would get): 70-200mm f4 l
Heaviness not an issue, though the lighter the better.
Prefer Clip style tripod (instead of the screw in the leg thing)
Smaller the better (least priority, as in folded lenght)
Welcome all suggestions, budget is flexible by $100 (pref to stay below 500)
Thx in advance..
