    What camera are you using ? Weight of camera + accessories ?
    Whats your budget ?

    As i am new to photography, i do not have much accessories....
    Will be getting a Nikon F80 soon with a 50mm f/1.8 for a start.

    Budget wise would not like to spend too much on it maybe around 100-200 plus.

    Then perhaps the manfrotto 190 series tripod For the Manfrotto 190proB, cost should be around $150 or below.

    the heaviest you can afford to pay and still carry around...

    dun waste money on those cheapo light tripods and lose the stability.
