i hear you, but I learned 1 thing: don't carry $20k of watches in a $20 briefcase (as my friend did and it was dropped from 15ft)


don't save $50 on a tripod when you have $500-$5000+ camera on it

I used a $30 tripod with my 6D.. the tripod broke when I was setting it up, *before* I put the camera on it - thankfully.

Now I use 190go, a heavy aluminum manfrotto tripod. Just wish I could get it with nicer locks, like my Benro tripod has.

Nope, not for a Manfrotto head. It's not the best or most expensive head, but it'll last and is trustworthy. I wouldn't mount a several hundred to several thousand dollar camera+lens on a cheap tripod with a generic head.

Except this is a pretty crappy head.

Good for a flash or small mirrorless camera.
