    More likely because they are unwilling to shell out a bit more for the better ones, instead they go for $20-30 tripods for a cameras which cost at least 10 times more.

    I think it is becos it is seem as something that photographer can do without.

    Spending 100+ on a 3 legged metal stand can be frightening for some.
