I'm trying to find a tripod of sorts with a few requirements and i was wondering if anyone had any ideas.
1. Must be small, . This is going to be for backpacking and i just want something to set up a camera so its not propped up on a ledge or anything.
2. Must be able to support about 1000g (about 2lbs) as i will be using a nikon d60 and hopefully an 18-200mm lens.
3. I would like the head to be adjustable so that i can set up the camera to shoot in portrait mode... would this be a ball head? ive seen you can buy heads separately but thats a bit beyond me. i'm not quite as well versed in the world of tripods quite yet.
Any help would be hugely appreciated as at the moment i know next to nothing on the subject.
P.S. Would this one be able to adjust to portrait mode at all?
