    I shoot mostly portraits budget is $300.00

    Bogen 190 legs with the 488 midi ball head rapid connect 2 system / quick release from B and H? Supports up to 17.6 lbs.

    That's the setup I have for sale (without the rapid connect) and it's solid... You'll like it I'm sure, I've tried it with a D80, D200 and gripped D90 without a problem.

    This might sound silly but what is the rapid connect? is your tripod for sale here on the forums?

    That's the tripod and head that I use. I have no complaints.

    If you're on the tall side you might want to look at the 055 legs instead.

    I think I was so thrilled about the quick release that I didnt think rapid connect ment what it said lol.. (thanks to google)

    Thank you so much for the replys and I am happy to hear it is a good tripod and people are happy with theirs. You helped make my decision....
