I need a light tripod for my D800 + 28-300 Nikkor

Hi,

I'm 5'2" female and my new kit is quite heavy; I'm a new Nikonian since taking the leap with the D800 - my first FX kit.

My current tripod is a Slick Slick Pro 330 which I bought on eBay for about £80 - it was OK with the D7000 kit but it lacks stability. I don't know if this is just due to the head or I need to upgrade the tripod from top to toe. Some recent HDR shots have ghosting and although the tripod head is as tight to the camera as I can get it, I can see the movement when I adjust the shutter speed to bracket shots.

I'm a photography student and I'm punching above my weight with the D800 anyway but what the hell - it's worth its weight!

Any suggestions for the best light, stable long-term-investment tripod under £300?

thanks
Aly
