Hello again everyone
Just to let everyone know that helped me choose my camera....Im loving it and taking hundreds of pics. Im really happy with alot of them but obviously Ive taken some rubbish too but who hasnt right ?
Ive ordered the lowepro slingshot 200aw bag which looks great but now Im after a tripod and was wondering if you could help me again.
I have the Nikon D60 with the standard 18-55mm lens and I also purchased the sigma 70-300mm lens so it will have to be strong enough to handle all that.I'd also like it to be light and not a massive hassle to carry around.
I wont have a massive budget so I know its a big ask for all those features at a lowish price but I thought I'd ask anyway.I could probably stretch to £100 at the moment.
Thanks alot again in advance.

The main thing to consider is the total weight that the tripod will support. You will get many differing opinions about tripods. Those who pay the price for the real nice ones are glad they did and can justify their purchase. I have a Nikon D40 with a Sigma 18-200 mm zoom lens, and I'm just using a Sunpak 6400 that I purchased at Best Buy for about $50. It does the job, but I don't particularly like the tripod head.
