Looking to buy a tripod before I go on vacation in July. I have considered the Bogen 055/488 combo. Not sure I want to spend quite that much -- thinking a budget more like $150 or so. Usage will be general (sunsets, family photos, yada yada)
Current body is a 450D. So I'm thinking I want something definitely capable of handling more than 10lbs. I wish I had hours and hours to really research the living daylights out of this, but between work and school, I cannot.
Open to all suggestions.
