Tripods / heads which one to buy
I am buying a Nikon D800 I will have a AF-S 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II as the biggest lens for now and next year I will get a 400mm or 500mm lens, so I want it to be able to handle that.
I have a budget of around $700 for both tripod and head, but the more I look the more it looks like I will have to spend. I want one that will go to about eye level and I am not to concerned about the weight of the tripod and head with in reason, what combo do you have and would you recommend ?
I was looking at the Gitzo GH2780FQR SER.2 SAFARI BALL HEAD QR at around $360, Gitzo GH3780 Series 3 Mag Centre Ball Head $415 and the Gitzo GH5380SQR Series 5 Systematic Ball Head Quick Release at around $440
As for the tripod I was looking at the Induro CT213 CARBON 8X Tripod, best price I have seen was around $440.
Any other recommendations more than welcome.
