I need something that will last a long time.
i think $150 is going to be pushing it.
here's one for $175 that is nice, but everything i read before i got mine said to get a ballhead.
is $213 pushing it too far?
this has the 486 ballhead, which is nice, but the 488 is quite a bit nicer
you can get it with the 488 for $250
that 190XPROB is a really nice unit.
otherwise, start here:
this is what i have
there you go!
the big benefit of the 190xprob over that one is that the head can go horizontal.
New limit - $200-225.
190PROB + either 486 or 488 ballhead.
that's pretty much the consensus that i could find on entry-level nice tripods.
the 055 (IIRC) is basically the upgrade to the 190 (thicker tubes, etc), but it's probably out of your budget with a head
I think I may go with a dynatran now.
Nice dynatran legs and an ok head? i can always upgrade by myself later.
