    i think you should just go down to the camera shop.
    test if the tripod can support the weight of your camera body + your biggest/largest lens.
    if can support and very stable, then you can get that.

    previously own one SX10i and the stein-zeisser tripod (medium size)...under strong wind, and zoom to 20x, the thing is shaky...buy a sturdy one, not those cheap one.

    for a prosumer, you do not really need anything too expensive.

    something like slik sprint pro will be ok, something like manfrotto 725b (for prosumers, which i use for dslr) is also ok.

    just make sure you get a tripod with a qr plate, and that you check the price before you go. whatever you pay more for will be frills like more "spreadable" legs, etc
