As i am new to photography, i do not have much accessories.... :bsmilie:
Will be getting a Nikon F80 soon with a 50mm f/1.8 for a start.

Budget wise would not like to spend too much on it maybe around 100-200 plus.

Then perhaps the manfrotto 190 series tripod :) For the Manfrotto 190proB, cost should be around $150 or below.

is it adviceable to get a monopod ... for me i kinda not have steady hands due to medication and to set up a tripod for like pic taken with shutter 1/20 to 1/60 in the day i kinda a hassle ... would a monopod be more suited for my situation?

the heaviest you can afford to pay and still carry around...

dun waste money on those cheapo light tripods and lose the stability.
