Travel tripod for newbie that won't break the bank
I'm just getting into landscape photography, and realized quickly that my tripod (that I inherited from a friend) is just too bulky and heavy. My only saving grace on my latest waterfall hike was my husband - he strapped my tripod to HIS backpack, since the carrying sling it came with didn't work with my daypack.
I'd like to purchase a lighter, smaller tripod (I'm only 5'2", so the 24inch folding height was pretty tall on my frame), that doesn't cost too much. I'd really like to spend less than $150, since I also want to upgrade my camera and buy a 50mm lens this year (I have a Nikon D40), and also invest in Lightroom and a new computer to run it on. Lots of purchases ahead!
Does anyone have a recommendation for a "starter" tripod. I'm sure I'll invest more in the future, but would rather save the monies right now for a new camera!
I'm also looking for a pack that can hold the tripod and camera - looking at the Lowepro photo sport, but not sure if it's too tall for me......
