...but I think I have finally made a decision!
I have a small and light tripod for travelling etc that is fine in most situations, but I am looking for something much sturdier. I am not overly worried about it being too heavy (within reason), I just want it to be steady enough to take long exposure photos with my D90 + 18-200mm VR lens.
I have decided to go for a pan / tilt head rather than a ball head as I will only really be using it for lanscapes etc and don't think i need the flexibility of a ball head.
So i just want some advice / confirmation by anyone who has had any experience with the following products that it's just about the best set-up for the price...
Manfrotto 190XPROB and Manfrotto 460MG 3-way Magnesium Head
I can get it online for about £150.00
Do you think I can get a better set-up for that price? I do not want to spend mega cash at this stage as I'd rather invest in a WA lens first.
Thanks for any input and advice / suggestions,
