Looking for new tripod

Recommended Posts

So after ages of using generics and losing backplates, i've owned, two of theses generic:

Not that exact same model, but just so you get the idea.

 

 

Ken rockwell swears by this one (though I normally dislike any of his recommendations, this does seem to be "sane").

My max budget would be around $100.

 

The weight is a D600 (1lb ish) plus 50mm and 85mm  small prime lens, so tops 3 lb.

 

 

 

I don't do much of tripod shooting, but I have myself with the ocasional need for one every now and then (family photos, long exposures) eg. the use wouldn't use it 24/7
