A new angle - Best Tripod for <$150?
 
What's the best tripod for <$150, and why?

cullmann magnasite 525 and slik pro series 700. Well below 150 dollars. If you are looking for super light weight flashpoint cabonfiber tripods. Just the legs are around 125 dollars.

benro ,but > $300, Manbily ,Fotopro, TK-254,Triopo and more are under $150,I just find Fotopro FLA-584G at flickr (http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/4842641350/ ),Camouflage.Personally I think it imitated Manfrotto, but the price is less than $100.cool..

Thanks for all the input. A Slik 700 is in my future. Further in the future after my wife's reaction to the speedlite I snagged on sale...

You won't be disappointed. I have a Slik Pro 500DX. It seems to
use the same legs as the 700. It is very strong and steady. It is a
bit heavy for carrying on my bicycle. It is also one of the few tripods
that is tall enough for me.

Slik seem to make the sturdiest tripods in this price range.
Low end Manfrotto tripods in the same price range are like
matchsticks by comparison.
