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:

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!
