Decent Budget Tripod ?


 Share

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for a tripod that will see likely just light use. Probably make some night shots and some other stuff.

I'd like to keep it under 30 bucks. Been looking at sunpak.

well, try to buy a light weight tripod because when you travel with it, you gonna get tired and wont bring with you anymore

the only reason why you could buy a more heavy weight tripod is when shooting during winter with wind!

Are all tripods compatible with all cameras?

Every camera and movie camera i've seen has the same place on the bottom of the unit to screw on the tripod.

By light use I meant I won't be using it a lot. :cool: As in I don't need anything top of the line but I don't want something that will break for no reason. :)

I'm thinking one of the ones above. The only difference I can tell is the one is spread out more. As for camera compatibility I was under the impresson that the only thing to worry about is the weight of the camera.

Well, hate to say it, but have you checked Wal-Mart?? I bought a $20 no name tripod that suits my uses just fine. I don't use it all that often but when I do it has yet to let me down.
