speedyswapper34Que the "don't even buy a tripod if you wont spend $800 or more" comments. but all else aside i have had good luck with my induro tripod, it works well for what i need it for. it seems to be a good balance between quality and price. also doesn't hurt to go into a camera store near you an get a feel for what products are within your price range.
I always expect them comments... its the internet after all haha.
I actually didn't even think of going into a store and having a play with some tripods so thanks for the suggestion. (Too addicted to online shopping clearly)
eheathI mean im not making this shit up, ive owned a $300 setup and a $1200 guess which one didnt break? The $300 setup broke after 2 years and my new setup has lasted 5 years of very, very heavy use. Investing in a good tripod is very worth it.
As always eheath I appreciate the wisdom and time you have taken to reply. I personally won't be looking to put mine through heavy use as most of the time I mainly do follow cam style filming. Any ideas on a decent lens?
