I am looking for an entry-level tripod for my DSLR.

I had purchased a Kodak tripod ($19.99) from Sam's Club that turned out to be very flimsy and does not inspire confidence in it's sturdiness.

I am looking at a SLIK U212DX for $99.

Is this a good buy?

Thanks

Rod

I then got an Amvona... identical to Bogen in my opinion for 28.25 US

What a deal. Solid and you will NOT believe it... I got an 858CL which included the head and a bag
Look and pick a model.. then bid. Liit yourself to say $55 including shipping
