Light travel tripod advise needed
Feb 13, 2013

I am probably going for a short journey, will have to fly and can't take my Manfrotto 190 tripod, too heavy and long to fit into luggage, I was thinking to buy one  once I get at my destination, was checking on B&H and hit the Vanguard Alta Pro 264, it falls within a reasonable price tag, what you think about it?

I would do some landscape with my D-SLR and wide angle zoom and some nature shots with the 80-200, nothing really heavy, what is your suggestion?

thank you
