Need a decent tripod for DSLR


New member
I just broke the one I had and need a new one. I don't want a multi hundred dollar tripod, something at a max of $100 will do. Suggestions? I want something with a quick release system if possible.

Thanks, I'll check it out. My old Rocketfish tripod (it was half decent) had a height of 65", I guess I'm looking for something similar to that as well. Looks like there's a few good ones to compare in that list. Looking at the Slik Pro 500DX and Oben AC1410 right now.

EDIT: And the Slik PRO 500HD/Slik Pro 700DX I guess.

Slik tripods are great. I have the 700DX Pro legs with a separate ballhead (combo is more than you're looking to spend though).
I went with the...

Manfrotto 055XPROB Pro Aluminum Tripod


Manfrotto 498RC2 Midi Ball Head with 200PL-14 QR Plate

Cost a little more but I haven't had any issues with it and it works well.

Looking back I wish I would have ponied up the $$ and went with carbon fiber. Never thought I'd say this but a few pounds saved is huge when out hiking.
