      Hi, hope you’re all having a good day when you read this. I’m about to get a tripod for my HV20 which just got in today, but don’t have a clue as to which one to get. I mean with so many out there.. I was thinking
      Bogen Manfrotto and would like to spend no more than around $200 – 250. I mean for such a small camera I wouldn’t imagine I’d need anything too expensive. I do want something quality that will have a good head included. Any recommendations? Thanks! πŸ˜•

      Amen to the above response. A good tripod will last through several cameras.

      And take a look at the "Tips and Techniques" sections of episodes 27 and 28 of Videomaker presents (on the Videomaker website here). They give excellent advice on tripod selection.

      My 3 cents worth, πŸ™‚

      P.S. — Michael, it sounds like you’re just starting out with videomaking, and don’t feel ready to invest over $400 in a tripod. I can totally relate. πŸ˜€
      You could "get by" with a $150 tripod for now. But as you get more into videomaking, you’ll eventually be shopping for a tripod in the $400 to $600 range.

      Thanks for the advice Hank. I was looking to pay about that much, but if I want a combo of head and legs, then it’s more in the $400 price range. I’m gonna go for the 503 and still thinking about the legs though.
      Oh and Ken, it’s actually kind of a good coincidence for me, I just finished vid 25, so I’m about to get to the tripod advice segment.
