Hi. I'm still quite the novice, but I am thinking of getting a Gitzo GT2531 tripod, a RSS BH-40 LR, and a RRS L-plate.
1. Is this a good combo? (What advantage would a BH-40 LR ll have over the RSS BH-40, if any?) I doubt I'll be using a lens longer than 135 mm, ever. I have a Nikon d80.
2. When I remove the center column/leg on the tripod, will I need or should I get a Markins TB21 plate? I'm not sure of its function.
3. I live in NYC and would like to do some city shooting, as well as occasionally shoot at the beach. Is this tripod a good choice? Some have suggested I need only get a cheaper tripod, since I won't use it often, but I've read the threads on here recommending to go with the best one can afford (tho this set up is a financial stretch right now.)
4. I'm only 5'3" tall -- will the tripod be OK for my height?
Thanks!
Vicki
