Congratulations, VTexan!  Saw


Congratulations, VTexan!  Saw your question on tripods in other thread.  We use very expensive Millers at work, but I use a $140 Ravelli AVTP at home.  Light, but all-metal and built like a tank.  Yes, it has a 75mm bowl socket and a bubble level, so you can level it with the adjustment of a single knob below the head.  I especially like the dual handles, for better control of pans and tilts.  This tripod does everything I need it to do – and it costs a lot less than Manfrotto.  You can get an unbranded version of the same tripod and head for $125.


Cheers and good luck!
