I have a Sony P150, and plan to use it for portraits, macro shots and the occasional landscape shots when I start to travel. I need a inexpensive tripod and I'm seeing this as a good deal for $60.


I like the individually adjustable legs, since I know I will be using it on uneven surfaces and inclines. I am noticing that not many people emphasize this feature, but to me it seems like a huge factor in buying a tripod. Anything I should know in this regard?

I was hoping to spend under $50 but will spend the $60 on this tripod as long as I know it's worth it. I've read previous threads here and many people in my budget are told to spend much more for a quality tripod. However, I'm a college student with a hobby I really can't afford. I want to make sure this isn't one of those "avoid at all costs" tripods. Any help or wisdom you folks could throw my way would be much appreciated. Thanks.

my biggest worry with this unit is how stable it is with the click lock legs. a tripod leg should be rigid as possible extended.
