I'm also curious about anyone's thoughts on @bibimbap's questions relating to tripods. For my part, I'm just starting to think about getting a tripod, want to get something as light and portable as possible while still being robust enough to deal with knocks and bangs. I've got decent kit that I've been building up slowly, so this is my next investment - that is, I want it to last. But also don't want to spend a fortune.... Advice welcomed. Cheers!
