I broke my last Rollei beyond repair because I was using a flimsy tripod with a poorly designed quick release plate. The Rollei lost its balance and fell off the windowsill. My bad, very expensive mistake. After saving for 2 years I have a Rollei again, this time a MX-EVS, an upgrade from my previous Automat2. Now that I have been burnt once the first asscessorie I got was a beat up rolleifix, however I am lost as to what kind of Tripod I should get. I am 6ft3in tall do mostly potrait stuff. Can anyone recommand me a tripod that is a good comprimise between price and safety? Also I use an array of Vivitar 283 the I got for cheap as my flash setup. Is there anyway to combine the tripod/flash/rollei setup together?
