I'm thinking I want to step up my Landscape game and I'm going to need a better tripod than the $20 department store models. But when I surf the net, regarding tripods I see things about removable heads, plates, Arca/swiss plates, Quick release etc. I am surprised to find myself more intimidated than I thought I'd be. Is there any reference material that discusses all this? So far, a casual search hasn't revealed anything.
