Recommend tripod for GH3/lens
Aug 31, 2013

I usually don't use a tripod, although I have a cheap but usable Manfrotto.  It works, but not especially stable.  I also have an Opteka carbon monopod I use for birding. Now I have an opportunity to go on a photo shoot with emphasis on sunrise and sunset.  I need a better tripod.

Any suggestions for a good tripod, not too heavy (I have to travel with it), and reasonably sturdy?  I'll be using it for my GH3; my heaviest lens is my 100-300mm zoom.

Your recommendations are appreciated.
