Also whats the best way to carry your camera on the hill to keep it dry and stop it from getting knocked around. Cheers for any help.

Hey mate, I use a manfrotto tripod, its light, & easy to pan around with if your videoing, I use my canon camera on it for stills, seems to work well, and is the toughest tripod ive come across so far, good value for your $$ too!, as for keeping your camera dry & protecting from shocks etc a good quality camera bag & wrap a ziplock plastic bag over it  does the trick for me, hope that helps

For my SX-50 I use a Lowe camera bag slung over one shoulder so it sits on my side. Doesn't get in the way, but is easy to get to so I actually take photo and video with it. If it is raining it goes in my pack.
One way to make your tripod "better" than it is is to carry a small bag that you can put a few rocks in and hang off the tripod. The extra weight will make it steadier.
My tripod is a cheap Slik aluminium one. The pan head is not the best, but it was cheap.
