  1. macrumors 68000


    can someone advice me toward a good tripod purchase? it doesn't have to be fancy, just something sturdy, preferrably light... i have about 150.

    it'd be a plus if it can be of some form that i can take it with me all over the place. :)


    edit: i really would appreciate if you provide a model number
  2. macrumors regular

    I recommend Bogen brand tripods
  3. macrumors 6502

    #3 on ebay. if you're patient, you can get a nice set of carbon fiber legs for under $70 shipped and use the rest towards any head you want.

    what tripod do y'all use? how do you like them?

    some model number would be nice

    i use bogen/manfrotto 3021BPRO legs and a bogen/manfrotto 3047 3-way head (i do not like the ball heads personally)

    not the lightest thing out there, but very stable and durable as hell. got it all at B+H.

    I have the Bogen Manfrotto 3021B legs with a pan-tilt head. A bit more than what you're looking to spend, relatively heavy, but in all honesty, it's the best investment I've made so far. Sturdy, solid, and flexible.

    Sorry- this:

    could you have taken the 3021B on a trip? say put in a midsized luggage?
