Hi guys,
I'm looking for a tripod for my compact Canon A510.
Since its so light and small, I guess probably any cheap tripod will do ?
Hopefully the cam can be mounted horizontally and vertically on the tripod..
Any cheap and good recommendations?

Thanks all.
Kenny

There are a lot of cheap, no-name brands that will be fine. I got one with a removable hot-shoe (very handy!!!) for about 25 SGD from a Fujifilm photo developing shop.

eh hot-shoe? i think you mean quick release plate... anyway I would actually suggest a slik sprint pro and probably a quick release from giottos... total damage would be about $120, but it is even good enough for dSLR + kitlens. :thumbsup:

Don't waste money buying expensive tripod for a PnS. Just get what Rashkae recommend. That will do just fine.

True, but don't get those that feels so filmsy. And a quick release plate is a must for the convenience.

Most random shops, yup. But I suggest you stay AWAY from sim lim and peninsula plaza. Just go to the fujifilm/kodak development studios or the places in funan. Do NOT get conned into spending more than $50.

By the way, my el-cheapo tripod with the quick-release plate is rock-steady even with an A100 and a nice, heavy, all-metal "beercan" lens. It has a level meter too. :)
