There are tripods that costs well over 1k as well.

Main difference between these tripods would be their construction quality and load capacity. You get what you paid for. I suggest you make a trip down to Cathay photo to see for yourself the differences. I'm sure Steven from the tripod section would be more than happy to help you out.

Huh? How to compare like that? It depends on what you shoot. Only you can decide for yourself.

Hi kit
actually i have a Am-Pro tripod, it is a very light alum tripod .
afraid that it may not support my D70.But the built in flash for the D70 is very weak.that why need to decide what to get first? :bsmilie:

Well, I still can't decide for you. :dunno:

For me, I would definitely get a stable tripod and head first because I shoot mostly landscape and architecture.

I'm being biased here but here's a hint....... if you use "chopsticks" to support your camera, someday something is going to fall over and break. However, though your built in flash is weak but you still can use it. :sweat:

I recommend you get an external flash 1st.. for tripod u can rest your camera on stable surfaces or beanbags for the meantime.. dats how i take nite shots when i too lazy to bring out tripod.. oh ya to prevent shake you can trigger the camera by the timer mode :D

For me, tripod is quite important since I shoot mostly macro. It also acts as a good form of defensive weapon to deter any assailants! :D

Try and see whether anyone selling second hand in here. Usually 2nd-hand tripod would be in quite good condition, since most people don't use them often anyway! :D
