^ to smilesnxtc... as a photographer you should credit that person and from which forum.. I've seen those photos at POTN!
The tripod.. mehhh.. I invested in Carbon Fiber ones with nice heads... tripods you only will need to buy once unless it breaks (CF hardly) or stolen.

Bought one to try it out when I get home, generally a 4 out of 5 rating across the board, and CostCo's return policy makes this an easy choice. Plus it's right up the street! Here's a link to a photographer who took 34 pics including mounting her 5DMKII + 70-200 lens in portrait orientation with 580 flash! Yes it creeped but if that's hardly ever the case for you, this is a nice tripod.

|ScrewDriver1965||I think this is also a lightning deal on Amazon at 4:30 PM CST likely the same price.|

However, form Vanguard's web site, this Alta Pro seems to have more features than Dolica's tripod, such as tilt center column.
I decided to go with Dolica, primarily because of price and weight.
