"Need new cheap tripod"
I just purchased a Gigpan Epic Pro Robotic Camera mount for shooting panoramas. I'd like to find a cheapish, sturdy tripod to hold this thing. It's about 8 pounds and my camera setup will probably be 6-7 (D3+70-200) so it needs to easily hold at least 15 pounds.Weight is not an issue since I'm not going to be carrying this setup very far from the car anyway.The first pano I'm planning to shoot will be from a hotel balcony so vibration damping would be really nice.I'm looking at this tripod. It's cheap, has plenty of capacity and includes a leveling ball. It seems perfect for this setup.http://tinyurl.com/cjoffdbDoes anyone have any better options or other thoughts?
