As I continue to build my new Digital Photography Set-up, I would like to again thank all the Forum Members for their suggestions and advice.
The next item of purchase is a Travel Tripod...something fairly compact. Much of my photography is performed when I travel cross country to California.
I would like to purchase a Tripod / Head combination which folds to no-more than say 22" in length. Something of decent quality. Budget $300-$350.
Any suggestions of a good Travel Tripod, and more important Head...would be appreciated. With all the different Heads (styles), this is where any extra advice would be helpful.
My set-up is fairly basic: Canon 40D, with 17-55mm IS Lens. Mainly Landscape Photography.
Note: My current Bogen 3001 Tripod and Manfrotto 3030 Head is just a bit too big / heavy for frequent travel.
