Hello,
I am looking at picking up a tripod to meet two criteria… these might be mutually exclusive criteria unfortunately though. First, I am a beginner photographer with a D5100. The largest lens I will most likely own for the short term is the 55-300mm. I am looking for a lens to cover 2 criteria:

1) travel tripod
2) architectural photography

I am looking at the following:
1) Benro A-2691T
2) Oben AT-3420
3) Giottos VGR9264-M2C
4) Manfrotto 294 3-way head

The Benro and Oben seem almost identical actually.

A couple of questions if I may:
1) Are ballheads acceptable for architectural photography? I can add a bubble level to the hot shoe.
2) Does anyone have experience with the above tripods?
3) Can you recommend a tripod that meets the above criteria and stays below $300USD?

I know this is a tough list of criteria.

Sincerely Thanks,
Regards,
Joseph
