I think it really depends on what camera you are using and your requirements for the tripod.

Didn't examine it closely, but I did see a quick release head which makes it more convenient to use. It looks suitable for small light compact cameras, but if you're using some heavy big SLR system, I doubt it will be stable enough.

what camera/lens/accessories are you using? that makes a big difference due to the weight. i don't think the $19.90 Carrefour tripod can support the weight of a large SLR with flash and the works... :D

my $0.02 worth.

if its just the 2600Z, the Carrefour tripod probably can support that weight and size. just don't expect too much in terms of flexibility and check your joints. don't wanna have the camera smashing to the floor cos of a loose screw... every photog's nitemare. :eek:

Well, seldom will there be something cheap and good.

Offhand no idea.. don't expect it to be very tall as it's quite a compact n lightweight tripod.

Best if you go down and have a look at it and maybe bring along your camera to see if it's suitable for the camera. It's selling at carrefour in the photo dept.

Weight is around 1.1KG, should be able to work with A40. Forget what is that model not sure it is 3020 or 3040. For 3020 Giant selling $30++ whereas 3040 selling $40++. Not sure what is the different between 3020 and 3040 too.

There lor~

I would recomand the Slik U8000 or U6600 for these DC.
They cost abt 50-60, can't remember.

They reach abt 1.4-1.6m in height, I think. Pan head tho` but light enough to carry ard and easily deployable!!
