well my crappy 20 year old tripod broke! i was expecting it so no tears

but im looking to get a good tripod and im wandering what are some good reliable companys for tripods?

i was looking at a sunpak tripod

but idk what is good or not, all i know is manfrotto and bogen are good, but is there something a little cheaper that is still good? thanks!

I have a Manfrotto 190XPROB and I'm loving it. It's no carbon fibre that's for sure, but it's light enough for me to carry around (and I'm no athlete to say the least). Very sturdy imo. I paid $180 for the legs, and bought a nice ball head for $80. I'm sure there are nicer around, but the price was right in my range. I think I'll be having that for 20 years or more myself, it's build is very solid.
