      I am looking for a tripod suggestion for my DCR VX2000 Sony. I need something smooth for pan and tilt shots. As well as lightweight..I am only 5’2 and not very strong πŸ™‚

      Is there a decent tripod out there for around $250???

      I mostly need it for weddings. I move around a lot when I am shooting so it has to be easily portable.

      Thanks in advance.

      oc6088,

      I was in your same situation about a year ago. Looking for a decent tripod, but not wanting to spend $500.00+ dollars on a Bogen or Manfrotto.

      I ended up with this:

      http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/243272-REG/Davis_Sanford_PROVISTA7518B_Pro_Vista_Tripod_with.html

      It’s a great, affordable tripod. It has a decent fluid head that allows for verysmooth pans and tilts.

      I’ve used a lot of cheaper and more expensive tripods, but this one is a great bang for your buck. Just read the reviews on the B&H site and you’ll learn alot about this great tripod.

      I just purchased a second and could’nt be happier.

      The only thing to watch out for: the head is made of aluminum and the tightening screws can strip the aluminum threads if you tighten too harshly.

      Happy shopping!

      I used to use this one:

      It’s great for the price.
