I've been searching the net for tripods and a tripod head. I cant seem to make up my mind. Even if I did, I might choose the wrong tripod and wrong tripod head. So basically right now I will be getting a Nikon D70s with 18-70mm, 50mm and a SB600 external flash. In the future I might want to upgrade to a better DSLR but I don't think I will go too far till a full frame (unless in the future it costs aroudn 1.5k ). I don't really know whether I should get a ballhead or a pantilt head. So I hope you guys can give me recommendations. I don't plan on buying a carbon fibre tripod even though people says that the vibration dampening is bad. I don't think this will be much of a problem for me cos I've got something in mind to improve the vibration dampening. (Hehheh like evil plan like that. Anyone interested?) So I need a cheap as possible tripod but reliable. Thanks CSers!
