I am buying some new lenses soon and since I am investing in some quality glass, I feel it would also be worth investing in a more stable tripod too! I have a cheapie at present and the slightest hint of wind and my pictures are very blurry! I don't want something too heavy so I'm considering carbon fibre. Can you suggest any? Preferably lightweight but sturdy and not too expensive (although Im aware CF tripods are significantly more expensive than others!) I would like to be able to turn my camera vertical at times and i do like the ball heads. I have had the Situt2205 x suggested with the k10x head from mainline photo.com.au. In total would be $430. Are there any slightly cheaper but still good versions out there? I'm no professional but I am a very keen amateur and I'm willing to pay for quality if need be! I have a Nikon D5100 and my heaviest lens is a 55-300mm lens which is not huge.
