god how many.

right im a newbie to dslr photography ive got a k30 with 18-55 and 70-300mm lens so far.

now i need a tripod but their are so many its getting a little confusing.
i dont want to spend the earth i just want a general purpose tripod i can take with me or use at home.

quite like macro and i do quite alot of shows i.e air, car shows throughout the year.

so as i joined up i thought i would ask you guys and gals what your using and what you would recommend.

going race retro in to weeks so need one by then.

please your guidance is needed.?
