Came across the Bogen Manfrotto Compact Series tripod for DSLR cameras and thought I'd share. Supports cameras up to 3.3lbs and extends up to 5 feet. Price ranges from $50 to $100 depending if used or new. Might even find it cheaper on Craigslist. Super light and portable too. See pics below. What tripod do you use and how much did you pay for it?
Looks like its a stills camera though so usable for locked off shots only - and provided of course you don't have super heavy lens that would tip the balance.
For video you would need a tripod capable of panning if thats what you need to do.
The tripod supports video camera/standard lens up to 3.3 lbs and is capable of panning. I believe a longer handle is sold separately.
The right Tripod is essential to me and worth the investment.. For DSLR video work I use a Millier DS10 Solo DV I've had it for years.. really versatile and robust, smooth pans and tilts up to 5kgs
I think that's the brand we used (a way older model). We mostly used it as a counterbalance for hand held...
For the budget,it's a good set. Manfrotto is a respectable brand (parts are nearly impossible to get though).
I use a Super Heavy Duty Tripod from the 70's made by Davis & Sanford that I got on Ebay, it's been great!
