Hi,
Had a bad experience (camera fell) with my Induro AK-B2 tripod which I have decided to sell.

I an amateur- somewhere between intermediate and advanced. Am 6'4" that puts a requirement on tripod height. My camera gear right now with longest lens and battery grip is under 5 pounds- don't envisage going over 6 pounds.. I like to shoot landscape. I would like a ball head function for general use but also would like to pan with the camera only moving horizontally. Also,
I don't want the camera to droop after locking the head- the Induro did that. Need a rock solid quick release system. I looked at RRS which was great but too expensive. I would like to keep budget under $700, preferably under $500. All advice appreciated. Thank you.
