Price isn't an issue. I'll have a look into those.

Don't have a clue about them so bit lost. Its for a nikon but not even sure what model

Doesn't matter what model it is, that will fit.

That's a good combination, how tall is the person? ill they be carrying it around a lot, i.e hiking with it?

remember if you get a profesional tripod it wont come with a head unit (the bit that attaches the camera to the tripod) and you can pay just as much for one of those as you can on the tripod

Its for my sister so about 5 foot 6, she's doing an Art degree so mainly for that so don't think she'd be doing to much hiking

Ok, the one i posted might be overkill then, i am 6ft 5 so need one that goes pretty tall!! Some people say it's heavy also, so not great for hiking maybe

These would be good legs then
