    Default Cheap Tripod

    Hi guys!
    I'm looking for a cheap ( less than $30 ) and not-too-bad tripod for my A40.
    Scout around Carrefour and Peninsula Plaza for 1 today.
    My findings:

    1. DigiPro ( forgot model )tripod $19.90 ( Carrefour )

    2. Slik U2000 $29 ( CP )

    3. Olympus ( forgot model, about same specs as Silk U2000 )
    $40 with case ( CP )

    Which do you think is better, or rather, any recommendations?
    I need one to bring to US, so it has to be travel-friendly ( light and short when folded ). Tks!

    I'd recommend that you go with the tripod you are most happy with. Just pay attention to things like the quality of the leg locks ...

    you should consider Velbon as well, at your budget. i got one and it's quite sturdy. they're available at Carrefour as well.

    erm... got the Velbon CX-888 from Carrefour... the quick-release plate sucks..... nevertheless, a good buy
