Hello, my name is Sven and I'm new here. I recently bought a new camera, it's my first DSLR. We chose a D3100. We bought a nice long Tamron 18-270/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD for everything really, it's really universal IMO. Then we got a Metz 50 AF-1 for better lighting and bigger rooms etc. And we asked for advice from a very experienced local photographer. I also have a Velbon CX-300, which we used with a small video camera. Well I think it's time for a new tripod, since it's really bad for the new camera. I really like my setup right now, the D3100 is really basic, but it does the job, I think it's more about the photographer. Anyway. I'm 190 cm tall, so it's difficult to find a high tripod without extending the center column. I think it's important that it's stable at my height, I don't want to f*** up my back I want it to have quick release plate and portrait mode. Also, since I plan on getting a macro lens soon (Tamron 90mm) then it would be nice to go quite low too. My setup weights ~1.5 kg right now, and won't go much higher probable, at least without a new body. So, I found the Velbon Sherpa 600R. But I'm afraid that it's not stable enough. I asked about it from a local site too, they recommended me the Manfrotto 055 XPROB legs. How good are those legs or the 600R? And what head would you recommend for the Manfrotto. I don't want to spend 115 on the Velbon if it isn't stable. I also don't have like 300 to spend on the Manfrotto or something else But still, recommend me something good.
