Am a newbie and would like to get a tripod to start with n not spending too much. Mainly shooting indoor, particularly at food.

depends on overall weight it needs to support.

unless your setup is really heavy, most of the time the bundled tripod when buy camera is more then enough.

Tripod with the plastic parts, the plastic part can break if subject to too much stress.

the center part join with the sliding arm that connect to the legs, cant offer better stability if u need to open wider.

plastic hinge join for turning the camera 90deg for portriat shooting usually not stable and very hard to get a perfect 90deg

well. im using that tripod for a few times. Its okay for my setup. 500d + 18-55 + hood. But its unstable if the centre column is extended to the max. other than that, i have no complains.

it all depends how much you want to pay and how light you want the tripod to be to support the weight of your camera system.

I take it you got a free tripod when bought the 500D....is there any reason why you want to get another tripod?

can get a second hand benro or similar.
