Tripod recommendations
Jun 4, 2010

hi all,

Having replaced my D200 with a D300, I'm looking for advice for a tripod. I used to have a Gitzo Mountaineer, but I'm not sure I can afford to replace that right now. The main reason I had the mountaineer was weight, but I can lug the extra if required.

The main thing I'm looking for is a tripod that can get quite close to the ground for certain shots, but an invertable centre shaft would be nice too. The main lenses I'll be using with it are:

  • Sigma 105mm Macro

  • Tamron 17-50

  • Nikon 70-300VR

I plan to use a Markins Q3 ball head with it.

Thanks in advance,

Wayne
