Hi guys,

Should be getting a tripod next week
Budget is relatively low, doing part-time work only
Below $200
Any decent recommendations that I can get at CP?
Thanks in advance for replies!

ya, but for 0.4kg more, it's max load is higher. Since my gear is heavy, I rather have a more stable set of legs. Besides, I'm using a double sling tripod bag to carry it ard and it takes the load off. :D
