Hey guys, I'm looking for a tripod the max weight it will hold is 120-300, 2x teleconverter and canon 7d. I'd prefer not to spend more than $250. Any ideas?


Canon 7D, Canon 100mm L F2.8, Sigma 120-300mm F2.8 OS, Sigma 50mm F1.4, Canon 430 ex II, Sigma 2x teleconverter, Kenko extension tubes, Vello flash cord And a few bits and peices and a Yashica 635!!!

If you already have a tripod head, and just need legs that will support the Sigma, I can recommend the Induro AT313. It's around $180.00, and I have used it with the same gear your talking about, (except mines not OS).

I've also had my gripped 5d3 + 120-300 + 1.4x + 2x, all on it with no issues.

It's nice and tall too. I'm 511, and I actually have to lower it a little from full height on flat ground. It works very well and I've been using it for about 2 years now. Good luck with your choice.
