I'm off to Canada in August and I'm looking to purchase a light(ish) weight tripod that folds down to fit in a case. I have a Nikon D300S and my heaviest current lens is a 70-200mm F2.8 with 1.7 teleconverter but may get a bigger lens in the future. I'll mostly be photographing Whales and bears whilst in Canada but also taking a trip through the Rockies so landscapes will feature.

I've been Googling and there seem to be a fair number of apparently suitable tripods out there, in particular there are lots of Benros. I'd really appreciate any advice on which are good but sturdy tripods that are suitable for travelling. I want to buy a tripod that will be suitable for the foreseeable future and cope with any larger lens I may buy, too many reckless purchases in the past.
