Hi Nikonians,
I need a tripod to accompany my D70. My main lens will be the D70 kits lens, which is 17-70/3.5-5.6 FX lens. I am thinking of buying either Sigma APO 70-200mmF2.8 EX HSM or Nikkor AF Zoom Nikkor 80-200 f/2.8D ED Autofocus Lens as my second lens.

With recent purchase of D70 and immediate purchase of the above zoom telephoto lens, I am kinda short of budget. Money is in a short supply. My budget will be USD 100 with 10% tolerance.

I am mostly shooting night scene thus tripod is necessary though I find jacking up the ISO can help me take the shot still. I want the tripod to allow me taking vertical shoot as well. I am fairly lacking of knowledge when comes to tripod and those choices of leg, ball-head, etc realy buffles me. Perhaps anyone can recommend a website for this kind of reading?

Appreciate your time and attention.

Regards,
Ice
