Tripod + Quick Release for Real Estate Photography & Video?
Nov 29, 2012

I'm getting into real estate photography, for which I need a good tripod and head.  I'll also be doing video for my clients, both on the tripod for panning, and swapping between the tripod and a GlideCam HD4000 for walk-around tours via quick release.

My main rig will consist of a 5D Mark III with Battery Grip, and a 17-40mm f4L lens for 90% of my work.  I'll be swapping out for the 24-105 f4 L IS for detail shots.

I guess I'd like to know what you all would recommend for an inexpensive but good quality tripod + head that would have a quick release plate that I could interchange with the GlideCam?  Price range is whatever it needs to be to make sure I don't find myself insanely frustrated, but the less I spend the better.  If it's unquestionably worth it, I don't mind spending the money.

Thank you!

Canon EOS 5D Mark III
