I'm in the market for a new tripod setup, with a budget of $200-$350, and was wondering what you all use/recommend?
I used to have a Velbon CX686, which was great with its fluid head (made for some really smooth pans), until I lost it on vacation a little while back.
I'm looking for something that can:
do smooth pans and tilts
carry the weight of my GH4 + lens, Zoom H5 + shotgun mic
can extend to at least 5 feet
I've been looking at this Manfrotto MVH500 head, but don't know what legs to put it onâ€” any recommendations on legs for this would be great too!
