Total newb here...apologizing ahead of time.

I've been looking at a lot of tripods and I like what I have read about Manfrottos. However, when it comes to actually trying to decide on one, it is a bit overwhelming. I want to be able to do ground level macro work with it (I don't want to bother with a separate tripod for that) as well as landscape work. I have no idea about 3 leg vs. 4 leg. I do want a carbon fiber and my limit is about $400. I am 5'5" tall. Also, if I get an RRS ballhead, will they be compatible?

Thx in advance for any clarity you can impart on me.
