Default Tripod for Rebel XS

Which one is the best entry level tripod which can support the weight of Rebel XS and 75-300 lens? I am looking for a compact one which is easy to carry around.
Thanks

What is you budget? What feature do you want.

vangaurd alta is pretty light, and it is a grounder also. It is about 90 dollars.

the cullmann 525 is another good one, it is more solid. But a bit heavier, it has monopole ability and is a grounder also. about 85 dollars.

For entry level (inexpensive) tripods, your best bet is to go to a good camera store and try out the ones the've got on display. You'll get a better idea of what's available and how the different features work, and you can ask for help.

But you should buy it there. After getting all the help you need from a salesperson, don't just take down the make and model and order it on-line.
