and the 804RC2:

Would this be an OK combo?

It's not for constant use, probably 40 days per year.

Looks like a good combination, especially for your limited use. you could drop down to either of the more basic 190 tripods

or

and save a few $.

The XB lacks the horizontal feature to the center column, but the center column can reverse such that the tripod can be used for ground level macro shots.

The XDB is just a basic leg set (lacks both the horizontal feature and the ground level {low angle adapter} of the other tripod)
