I recently bought a Sony H1 and was wondering if someone could help me out in choosing the right tripod for the camera that I have. I went to the bogen website after reading so many good reviews about it but am confused with all the things that you see there.

I used to have a Velbon tripod but after using it for a year the lever that you use to adjust the height of the center column broke into two parts all of a sudden.

Whenever we travel, we always bring the tripod with us so it should definitely be something that we can bring with us all over ( should fit in our luggage ). Not into nature trekking or mountaineering.I mostly liketo take pictures of birds, butterflies, insects, people, landscapes, beach scenes and the everyday things you see at home or gardens.

Would really appreciate all the help that I can get. Thanks a lot :bye:

remember that a tripod is as much a tool of composition as your camera is. what has to be decides is the cost/benefit ratio for your work. you need also to establish your budget for said equipment. going in blindly and overeconomically will just cause further and more painfull purchases beyond the initial one.

thats the beginning.
