Because dealers here only stock a small selection of mostly heavier commercial models, I haven't had the opportunity to look at the 3205GN tripod. It seems to fit my intended use as I plan to take it along with me on my motorcycle travels. Its light weight (2.2kg), short when closed (17cm). Its also a little short (148 cm) but you can't get it all.

I can't decide on a head and having never used a good tripod, I am guessing. Would I go wrong with a 3030 or 3030G? I don't plan any heavier than a N80 with a 70-300 D ED AF.

Anybody see a problem here or have a suggestion of a proven combination that may be a better choice?

Bill
