I saw this Hama tripod in a store for 24 euro's. The woman next to me classified it as a very good tripod.

so I set it up in-store, and....well...let's say the word wobbly came to mind, instantly defeating the whole purpose of having a tripod in the first place.

I found the Velbon tripods to be better, the Sherpa ones were very nice (and more expensive). Just expect to shell out 80 euros or more for a good tripod, below that is a waste of money since you will still get shaky shots.

I have a Velbon Sherpa 200R, which i am very pleased with, although the only thing i wish, is that it would go lower to the ground :!:
