Hi fellow Nikonians, I've been in the market now for quite some time to buy a tripod, ballhead,& flash bracket. This is what I have come up with and I really value the great advice I have received here. So before I go and plunk out the $600-800 please let me know what you think about my choices. I am buying the following for ease of use, solid construction, and mobility. Any additional items you think I should get w/ these items or reasons why I should not get the following would also be appreciated.
All from BH Photo

1) Bogen/Manfrotto Tripod legs w/ 808rc4 3way pan/tilt head Rc-4 QR

2) CB Digital Pro-M Bracket Kit w/ cmp camera plate, fcn flash cord & QR tripod qr.

3) Nikon sc-28 shoe cord

Basically, I shoot events and I want to be able to use my tripod and then remove the bracket and go off shooting candids. Is this the right fit for me?
Thank you in advance, Diane
