TS, yours is a question with no right or wrong answer. As mentioned by bro cleonbus: Person A says Manfrotto good.Person B says Gitzo good.Person C says Benro good.Person D says Sirui good.Person E says Fancier good.Person F says Fotopro good. How?
There is no one perfect tripod IMO. Suggest you start off by setting a budget for yourself, take into account all the above-mentioned factors highlighted by some fellow CSers and work within that pool of money. Otherwise you might end up spending 1k+ on a tripod. Unless you tell me $ not a problem, then I got nothing to say.
