Hi people, i would like to ask for some advice... i need a good tripod for my nikon D7000. I do some outdoor photos, shooting sports, some beach and countryside. i dont go to extreme weathers. I have access here in Peru to a brand FANCIER (any rating? model FR 6606) im thinking a range between 150 and 300 dollars. Thanx

ive seen (a little expensive this options too) worth it??
www.amazon.com/Manfrotto-055XPROB-Tripod...s=Manfrotto+055XPROB

or would be enough:
www.amazon.com/Manfrotto-190XDB-Section-...rds=Manfrotto+190XDB

and Ball head or 3ways? i prefer ball but some says that for video (which i use little 3 way or compact 3way goes better)
opinions and suggestions?

I have the Manfrotto-055, both the aluminum and carbon fiber version. I know you said 300 dollars, but if you plan to do much hiking I think you would be VERY happy spending the extra 100 dollars now for the carbon fiber version. It really makes a big difference, at least to me. But if not, the aluminum version is also a great choice. I use it for doing time-lapse since it is heavier.

As for my normal shooting (hobby, private) i have a simple 30 bucks tripod which does the trick for me. Lightweight (because its a piece of junk ;)) and it holds my camera.

If you need something where you can really trust on, you have to go for a vanguard or Manfroto. These are the best.

But to be honest, i cannot advice you on that other than take a stable one, and if you are planning to hike or something, take the carbon version.

Greetings,
Roy

I use a Vanguard Alta Pro 263. I use it for all of my night shots. At 5lbs, its a beast to carry though. I took it on a recent trip and found it was too heavy to carry with all of my fishing gear. Aside from the weight, its a great tripod. On a typical night run, I walk around 3-4 hours carrying it and have no troubles. I also think the ball head gives me more flexibility.

In my reserch I will be thinking of getting the Manfrotto 055CX Pro 3 Tripod, and the manfrotto 808RC4 3 way standard head with quick release plate (410PL). If the Manfrotto 229 3 way super pro head with RCO rapid connect plate is conpatible with the 055CX I will go with it because of it's safer release mechanism and smoother operation.

I second the Manfrotto-055. I have the Al version.....although I would like to give the carbon fiber a teat run! Nevertheless, its a great tripod. I have had a few "cheaper" ones before but this one is true.
