Looking for Tripod

Postby 01db8 on Fri Dec 07, 2007 4:34 pm

I am looking for a Tripod that would allow me to take night shots and nature shots. I am looking for something sturdy, reliable, and versatile. I don't want to replace this tripod unless I absolutely have to. Right now, I have a nikon 5000, but I am looking to purchase a NIkon D80 in the next few months. My budget is about 150-200, but am willing to go over a little bit. Any suggestions?

Thanks

Hi

That depends on what you mean by night shots. Are you planning to astrophotography? If so, you need to attach your Nikon to a telescope with the correct drive system. On the other hand, igf you simply mean a solid photo tripod, try a Bogen, such as the Bogen Manfrotto 055XDB, 128RC Tripod and Head kit
