|4 section Tripods ©MarkJansen|
I suggest a Ball Head for landscapes and most other types of still photography. One with as few adjusting knobs as possible. Stay away from Panning types with fluid heads; they are designed for video.
I’ve been slugging around one tripod or another for years. I started with some heavy models and then moved to the lighter ones made with more modern materials. They are expensive, but worth it when it spends a lot of its life on your back. I basically have a few requirements for my tripods. I always opt for the 4 legs section models. They are great for easy packing in carry on baggage with the head removed.
