I am a newbie and have to say the tripod and ball head thing has me a little confused on what to buy. My camera body is a D200 my largest lens is the 70 200mm vr. I would like to get a tripod and ball head that would support the before mentioned equipment and be light enough to take on a hike etc.

Ideally I would like to spend around $250(USD) and get both pieces. I don't even know if that is realistic or not. I don't mind to spend more if I need to because I don't want to buy something and not be happy with it and then have to spend more money on something different.

I would like some suggestions about what tripod you guys would recommend and what ball head (assuming I need a ball head and not something else).

Your suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Sean
