 Post subject: First Tripod
PostPosted: Wed Jul 09, 2008 10:40 pm 
Hey guys, I'm wanting to buy my first Tripod for my first DSLR cam.

I have just bought a Sony Alpha A200 camera and I cant justify paying a lot of money for a tripod? Dont they all do the same thing?

I am looking at Argos Deluxe 153cm Camera/VideoTripod with Carry Case

Do you think this will be ok?

EDIT: The original URL was so long it broke the page frame. I've replaced it by a much more user friendly (and shorter) one using the [url=..]..[/url] syntax which I recommend for future use. :wink: Bob Andersson.

I currently use a £30 tripod too (borrowed from work!), and it does me ok. Sure you can get more expensive ones with lighter weight or better mechanisms, but as long as it remains stable in use and can be easily configured to do what you want it to, it should be fine.

Canon DSLRs: 7D2, 7D1, 5D2, 1D, 600D, 450D full spectrum, 300D IR mod
Lenses: EF 35/2, 85/1.8, 135/2+SF, 70-300L, 100-400L, 100L, MP-E 65, EF-S 10-18, 15-85
3rd party: Zeiss 2/50 makro, Samyang 8mm fisheye, Sigma 50/1.4A, 150 macro, 120-300 f/2.8 OS
Compacts: Sony HX9V, Fuji X100.

I think £30 is plenty as this is my first DSLR. It will do fine whilst I'm learning.

well im using This off amazon for £12 and its fine for me, after all a tripod is a tripod.

For £12 this tripod is a bargin. it seels sturdy and stable and seems to do the job well.
