I own a Vanguard Alta Pro 283CT Carbon Fiber Tripod and really like it. It's sturdy, lightweight, and versatile. It also can position really low to the ground for macro photographs or other low compositions. It is an excellent tripod for macro photography. The tripod is so versatile that if wanted to, I could even position the camera completely upside down.
