After years of putting up with a super cheap, heavy tripod I am ready to get a much better one. However, I am not prepared to spend $600, $700, or more on one.
I did find a carbon fiber tripod and Ball head that look fairly good to me, but without experience with one I don't know for sure.
I am not a pro, just a hobby. I am getting into bird photography, but I like shooting everything. I am constantly shooting events which don't really need a tripod, but I do have an event coming up where I am shooting graduation formal shots & a tripod would work well for that. I mostly want a good one with ball head to set up in my blind for birding.
I was wanting some feed back from anyone who has had experience with these Benro tripod & head:
Between the two, I would spend around $440 which is more in my price range.
