I am looking for a new tripod because my old one is broken. I'll need some recommendations! Here are the things I am looking for:
- Lightweight (for travel)
- Ball Head
- Quick Release Plate
- Does not need to be too tall (1.4m high fully extended will do)
- Below $80
I hope I am not too ambitious? I have seen one attractive Fancier model for $85 and it fits the bill, but I do not know of the quality of Fancier brand tripods. Are they good?
I have also seen another one for $75 - it is presumably a China brand tripod which has an identical logo to Manfrotto (probably a copy) and a similar name (can't recall)..
What do you think?
