I use a Nikon d90 and am considering a tripod. It would be used mostly for group pictures and setting the timer and night photography for long exposures. I do this mostly for myself and to share with friends and family. I don't need anything too expensive but definitely want something that will be secure and can handle the weight with no worries. My equipment: lenses 18-105, 50 1.8, 70-300 and tokina 12-24. I do have the sb 700 speed light and would like to be able to use it if necessary. Budget, no more than $500 It has been suggested that i i look at the Manfrotto 055XPROB or (055XPO3 if I want to increase my budget) and the Induro PHQ1. The legs I am good with but read up on the head and there are good and bad things said about it, so I am not sure. Any help is greatly apprciated.
