harlow ppl,

i came across a cheap and small tripod at carrefour yesterday.
looks approx 30 cm when folded. the legs aren't that thick but i supposed it's sufficient for a small camera like my Oly c2040.
does anyone has any experience using this tripod?
btw it costs $12.90 i think and from the looks of it is good and cheap enuff to bring on a trip.
so any comments?

cheers, ;)

Hmmms, sound interesting. How heavy is it. After you extend fully what is the height?

I've seen it last week also...

But if I remember correctly, should be $13.90, 4 sections, no quick release, very light, come with a tripod bag...

Quite a good buy if you don't mind it being a bit shaky and the trouble to tighten the screw everytime...

;)

Prime you are still looking for the Lowepro DR beltpack ah?

Well, was thinking of selling my brand new unused one to you because my wife said I looked like pregnan lady with it. Use it today as a last trial to see if I want to get rid of it.

The verdict is, I love it. Never mind the look but it is very practical. Grab one from CP when the stock come in 2 weeks times.

Cheers-- ;)

Hi Kevin,
finally got it!

Very practical indeed, but slightly too big.
Thanks!

Ultrapod or the ballpod. both have a ballhead rather than a flat one.

Actually, carrefour had another tripod on sale b4 the present one. The previous tripod on sale was slightly bigger i think, and had a quick release. Not sure if carrefour still stock it right now. Was going for under $20 if I remember correctly.

Just a quick check... is it that all tripods will fit the camera? I mean the screw... is it a standard size? If i buy a tripod that fits a minolta cam, will it fit a nikon one in future?
