Default Tripod for Canon DSLR and Telephoto zoom

Here is our recommendation for the most economical David & Sanford tripod that is suitable for your "little studio" application: the EXPLORERV TRIPOD. It is sturdier and somewhat more stable than the Traveler. As for the lighting, you really have to decide whether you want a continuous light source or a flash with a diffuser. Both are viable options and we suggest that you talk it over with a lighting specialist in your area to determine the most cost-effective alternative for the type of subjects you will be shooting. Best of luck and good shooting. Jason Schneider
