Hey guys,
New here.

Looking for a good value tripod/ballhead setup for $400. I am working on a limited budget which pushes the gitzos and the arca-swiss's out of my price range.

I shoot weddings, and am looking at getting into shooting real estate as well as more business portraits etc.

I am not exactly sure if I need a super light carbon tripod as the reduced weighted I am worried will make it less stable.

If I had to spend more money somewhere should I spend it on a head, or legs.

The heaviest setup I currently have would be a D700 (possibly gripped) with 80-200 2.8 af-s and a sb-800. I am not a wildlife photographer so I can't envision myself buying anything crazy long in the future.

I am 6'2".

Tripods considering.
induro at213, feisol ct-3301 or ct-3401

heads
vanguard sbh-250 (non-arca swiss), photo clam pc-36ns, benro b2, oben bb2.

Anything else awesome out there. I don't need top of the line. Just something that will give the best bang for the buck.
