Hi all, first post here so hey to you all.

Just got my canon 600d the std lenskit and is quite satisfied with it although I now know that I need a wide angle lens for my architectural and interior shootings.

I am now looking at tripods and is looking at:
1. Pearstone - VT-2100 Fluid Head Video Tripod
2. Manfrotto - 190XPROB 3-Section Tripod with 322RC2 Ball Head Kit
3. Manfrotto - 190XPROB Tripod Legs (Black) with 804RC2 3-Way Pan/Tilt Head

and number 1 above comes almost 1/3 of the price of the others and has received excellent customer reviews over at B&H and was looking for your opinion about it.
I am looking for ability to pan and tilt with ease and as I am using GoPano as well for ability to level easily.
As I am short I am sure all of them will suite me from that pov.

Thanks for any advice you can extend here.

If it's all you can afford, that's fine, but generally, buy cheap & buy twice.
I notice it's classed as a `video` tripod & it only extends MAX 64" (tripods tend to be more stable when not fully extended) suppose it depends how tall you are & whether you'll need a taller tripod?

Welcome btw. 8)
