Help me choose my travel tripod set.
Mar 14, 2013

Hi there!

Time to buy a tripod for traveling light!

My heaviest lens is a 70-300 with a D7000 body. The only additions I might think of now are a grip and a sb-700. Im not planning on buying heavier lenses or change the body any time sooner.

Im definitely more interested in portability/lightweight than stability but, of course, I dont want to compromise THAT much stability. I would like a good compromise but portability coming first.

So far I've narrowed it down to these 2 manfrotto tripods here, 190CXPRO3 and 190CXPRO4

OR

And for ballheads I have these 3, manfrotto 498RC2, giottos MH1301/MH1302 PRO:

THANKS!
