I get dizzy looking online at tripods - There is a local camera store that stocks bogen and gitzo. Basically I'd like some experienced input - I borrow a tripod at this point and its getting to the point where I need my own! heaviest glass would be an 80-200 2.8 possibility of an sb800 mounted to the body ( D80 ) I would mainly use it for static shots, and about 1/4 of its use would be panning ( cars going down a drag strip ) Mostly outdoors, but weight dont bother me. Can someone please point me in the right direction as to what I should be looking for? I am assuming a ball head would not be in my best interests since I will only be panning - but any comments on that would be appreciated as well Thanks!
