I'm heading back to Australia on Sunday and would like to get a new tripod.
I would like to use it with my Olympus E-410 (which I'm learning to love!) and whatever compact I end up buying on this trip. We're also looking at buying a video camera so I can record my little girls at ballet and swimming and would like to be able to tripod mount.
I had a Velbon tripod about 15 years ago. It's probably still in a packing box somewhere! But it was really too bulky to cart around.
I'm only a shorty at 5'3" so don't need anything giraffe height! I'd like something compact and lightweight so I can easily pack it for trips (I head out of PNG every few months).
Any recommendations? And any recommendations on where to head in Sydney CBD?
