Alright all the tripod experts and travelers, what do you think about this for a beginner? I have been looking into getting a tripod for those photos of the milkyway. Most people seem to recommend that it is better to spend upwards of a $200 and get something with nice and light made out of carbon fiber since I'll be backpacking it. I kinda agree with the argument, but I am not fully set on spending that much unless something like this will do just fine for my purposes. Anyone has any insights into this? Thanks!

If all you're going to throw on this is a wide angle, even if it's a heftier Canon 16-35 L series, something like this is totally fine. There are plenty of 75 dollar tripods that will handle stuff like that without hesitation and be reasonably light. Heck, the dolica GX600B200 runs 50 bucks without going on sale and will get that job done. I've been perfectly happy with how it held a 5d Mark III and 16-35 2.8. Carried that hiking and walking air show tarmac for hours on end with my students. Carried mine for almost 2.5 years and it's in perfect shape, with a second and third that i loan out to students all the time for weekend/evening shooting. But if you start putting some more weight on there... 70-200 2.8's, that sorta thing... something more sturdy is definitely in order. Not sure what kind of camera and lens you're shooting with, so that's part of the answer.

Good company. They make nice tripods. I have a huge carbon fiber and magnesium tripod from them with a geared center column. It's like a rock with my metal field camera setup. This tripod looks good but I would not trust too much weight on such a head design. You can easily take it off and put your preferred head type on.

I had a cheap tripod like this when I first started and I regret the purchase. If you hardly ever use it then this would probably be fine. I don't like center mass posts, because they're nowhere near as stable as just the legs but if you want a tall tripod with no center post and is light then you pay for it. I read all the people saying that you buy a new one first, because you'll end up getting rid of it or not using it. They were right and it cost me.

Does this include a quick release plate? If not which model plate is compatible with this tripod?
