I don't use a tripod currently. I have a cheap one...that I hate...maybe a big part of why I never use one.

I plan to start shooting more "fun stuff" just for me...possibly for competition. In the studio I hand hold everything. I will be using the tripod for landscapes and static images mostly.

The tripod I have now is a carbon fiber but you have to unscrew the legs joints to raise or lower it. What I want is a good tripod that I can just push or pull to raise or lower and a good head that is easily moved/rotated into a variety of positions and locked there.

I want something in a reasonable price range. What is reasonable? Idk? Under $1K for tripod and head. I would appreciate any suggestions, to know what you use, and why you like it.
