Hello everyone!
My wife is a 'beginner' photographer. She takes a lot of pictures for family / friends, a lot of outdoor stuff as well. She has a large background in Photo Editing more so than actual photography.

Anyway, I've been buying her some equipment through out the years and for Valentines day, I want to get her a 'decent' tripod.

By decent, I mean I'd like to stay within a $400 budget for head and all. She is not a professional photographer, so I don't see spending any more than that as a reasonable option.

She uses a Feisol monopod for when she's walking around, I bought it a couple years ago and she really likes it.

A few things to note, that I think might be of some importance.

1. She's a tall lady (6ft 1in)
2. She does have a 'heavy' lens I got her a year ago, if that would make any difference. The Sigma 50mm - 500mm
3. She shoots mostly nature shots, but does take pictures of our baby, family and stuff from time to time.

She boght herself some Zeikos tripod a while back for $100, needless to say if she didn't have her camera strap around her neck the other night while she was shooting the picture of the moon / jupiter.... it would have taken a nasty spill.

Thought I'd hook her up with something 'decent'.

Any help is greatly appreciated.
