    1st of all it is Canon 500D
    And yes please check out the link.
    And yes, please set a budget. You will be surprise as cheap as $30 (The 'Nikon' brand) as expensive as $500 or $600 (carbon fiber) can hold your 500D.

    Usually, I will recommend Benro.

    Check out the China-made Siriu brand at TK. I have been using them as spare tripods for a long time and I can tell u they are well-made and a budget alternative to Gitzo.

    1) it's ballhead type.

    i don't know what handle type is, i think you mean pan-tilt head.

    2) ballhead is just as lasting as pan-tilt head, depends on how you use, whether you throw your tripod around.

    3) what is your budget? if you have a budget of $300-$400 you can get a long lasting tripod. but if you spend that money and worship your tripod like many people here in clubsnap do, then might as well don't buy. work with a budget where you are willing to spend and willing to use your tripod with.

    for $88 or so you can look at fancier tripod from tago tech

    For starter.... suggest getting Fancier Tripod from tago tech. Cheap and it works for beginners with 'light' lenses.

    If you have the buget.... and want to just get a better tripod which you won't need to 'upgrade' anytime soon.... check or Benro.... they might be a 'China' Brand making 'copies' of more well known brands.... but for their price, you can't get better... just my 2-Cents Worth
