A newbie here who recently bought a 550D for my coming honeymoon in Europe. Just like to ask for opinions regarding tripod.
I am planning to bring my gripped 550D with a 15-85mm IS USM lens on it for my trip. I think the total weight will be around 1+ kg. I am also thinking of purchasing either a Canon 430 Ex II or Nissin flash to go with it.
Can fellow ClubSnappers please do recommend me a good tripod able to take the total weight (together with flash) and yet is light enough for me to lug around on my trip? Also, can someone please educate me about the ballhead? Shouldn't the tripod come together with the ballhead? What is the advantage of buying separately or rather, why separate the 2???
Thank you all so much in advanced!!
