No. Already a very cheap model (10 $) will be sufficient for most applications. It will hold the FZ35 because it is a rather light weight camera. If you need one, which holds the camera rock solid even when you touch the camera - then a more expensive tripod is required. I have both.

i can recommend the Hama Star 62, pretty cheap and is decent quality. i love mine. very light, and has a hook on the bottom to add a weight if needed.

With tripods, you want a stable one. Most of the cheapo ones are not very stable and can be knock over easily. Especially with a lighter camera onboard.

I would look at a cullmann nanomax. You can set it up for really low shots, as it can be a grounder also. And they provide a short center tube to get really low.

Depending on where you are, sliks make good tripods and are a bit easier to find.
