I have never used a tripod and was wondering if one of those pocket size, mini tripod will work with a DSLR and a big lens. I don't have the camera yet but it will probably be D80 or D90 (if available by July) and a 17-55. I know the 17-55 will not be balanced on the D80 due to it's weight so I'm not sure how this will workout on a tripod? Is there a brand and model of mini tripod that that might work for my situation? Thanks for your help.
