Im looking to buy myself a normal, durable tripod, after dealing with a friend`s SILK tripod and realizing that it is not serious enough.
I have used the manfrotto configurator, and based on what available in local stores,
I have decided on the following combination: 486RC2 + 055XPROB.
Now, As far as my equipment goes, right now the heaviest lens I have is the 17-55 f/2.8 + 450d, but in few months, it will be 450d +70-200 f/2.8 + 580exii
the head can hold 6kg, which I believe is enough, but Im afraid that the combination is too heavy compared of what it can hold.
I would like to hear your opinion, advices, and ideas for other combinations also.
