Best value for tripod, moderate lenses only?
Jan 19, 2009

I'm decided to get a good tripod, one that I can use for a stable platform on lenses up to 400 5.6, also, 500mm 7.2. I want a rock solid unit, but being carried alot, I think liikely carbon fibre. There is a possibility that I'll use it with a digiscoping unit in the future, so it should support that as well.

Which models would you fellas reccomend for this purpose, hopefully totalling no more than $450 USD or thereabouts including the ballhead?

Thanks in advance.
