As planned, I bought a new tripod last night to go with the new camera. I mentioned a couple of posts back that my old tripod was purchased at Wal-Mart for about $50. While it had three legs to technically meet the definition; it offered little else.
So I bought a Vanguard Alta Pro 263AB. This product is solidly in the mid-range, so that makes it a big step-up for me. The main selling points for me are the ball-head and that the central shaft can be moved 180 degrees (this will let me photograph ground and such for 3D textures).
This will be the last of my photographic purchases for awhile. At least until Photoshop World is over.
