    Default Recommend Tripod

    Hi guys.

    I'm on a very tight budget but wish to get a light tripod for my SLR+External Flash. I've got a solid but heavy Slik but it's not very practical for me to carry it out to tours.

    Is there any cheap(hopefully <$100) yet decent tripod that you'll recommend?

    Thanks.

    What about a SLIK U6600 or U8000.
    It's kinda light, made of hollow aluminum (won't break easily compared to carbon fibre). And both are definitely lower than 100 bucks.

    I will advise you to save more and get a more stable tripod. Search and you will get more suggestion.

    $200 will be enough for a decent one.

    I agree with binbeto.. raise ur budget to 150 and you might get a manfrotto 190 used on this forum..

    I had the U8000
    I have the Pro500DX.

    The former is too light and somewhat unsteady against breeze, while the latter is quite a chore to carry.

    Both are ok with u r shooting in town or have ready transport, but if u are on a trek, I think u need something in between.
    Getting a 1kg+ tripod shd be ample, I think.

    Oooh. Hmm, maybe I'll keep a look out for this model in the buy/sell then. Argh! Really hate to carry a heavy tripod around.
