I am going to be using this tripod for mainly super-macro plants/bugs. So I'll need to be able to get low, and it has to be sturdy(I'll be using a remote to fire the shutter). But I'm confused when looking at the endless lists of tripods on the internet.
Thinking a Giotto, or maybe something else?
What do you suggest? Budget is around/under $500.00
