Manfrotto 725B Digi Tripod for your D40

Manfrotto 725B Digi Tripod with Integrated Ball Head with Dove Tail Plate and Carrying Bag (Black)

I received this Tripod for Christmas from my girlfriend and i love it! It's definitely way better then my Promaster 6100 i have been using. The ball head is awesome and I'll never go back to the conventional type tripod again! I have used this with my D40, 70-300 vr and SB600 with no problem! Having just one knob to turn and re-compose is great. I would definitely recommend this Tripod for anyone that does not want to spend hundreds of dollars on a tripod and still get a ball head type tripod.
