I need a tipod that will support my Nikon N80 camera with a heavy lens, (either my nikkor 80-200f/2.8 or my sigma 28-70 f/2.8) in the vertical position. The tripod I have currently has a quick release mount that, when the tripod is setup to take vertical shots, the quick realease attacment unscrews itself slightly from the camera, givng me only a shot of the ground. While the 80-200 has the tripod collar that i can turn the camera to the vert. pos. with, the sigma does not. I think I would like to get a bogen , but whatever you can reccomend is appreciated. Model numbers would be great.
