Would you like legs that collapse to a very short package, or legs that are quick to set up, or a built-in levelling base, or something very cheap, or ...? Are you tall or short?
If you have no other requirements, just go to a store and buy the cheapest tripod that doesn't wobble.

For pano shooting it will be used with Nodal Ninja 5 Lite pano head and Nikon D40 with mainly with Nikkor 10.5mm FE, although I may also use the 18-55mm kit lens. At this stage I have no intention to use long telephoto lenses.
I want to shoot indoors and outdoors but don't intend to go hiking with it.
What do you recommend as a suitable tripod and tripod head? And why?
