Well, you guys were so much help in choosing my lens, I now need advice for a tripod.
It should be very adjustable, as I'm in a wheelchair, and generally need far shorter heights than the average person.
However, my 20 dollar samsonite tripod was swaying like an elm tree today, in a mild breeze so I recognise the need for a better tripod.
I see now that a Crown Graphic catches much more wind than a 35mm with a normal prime.
I'd also like one that can go really, really close to the ground, if it is a reasonable request, as I like to photograph tombstones, and sleeping dogs.
I'd also like to spend under $100, if possible, as I'm a U. Student.
So, I've come to where the experts live.
