I need a decent one. Nothing cheap.
less than 200...?
I just got my Giottos 9360 for cheap. I love it. $150ish.
do you have pics of it? How tall is it?
Yeah - I'm in the middle of writing a review. I'll PM you a link tomorrow. It gets taller than I am with the center column fully extended. And that's without a ballhead or the height of the camera. I'm 5'6"
just got one, and it's great.
i think it gets to about 6.5' tall
This is what I have:
thats badass... where'd you get it from?
Adorama. - $157 shipped. Left me some good money for a nice ball head too.
I can't find it on their site... link?
Whats a good ballhead to match with that? Maybe around 30-50?
I think I'm going to get an Amvona. If you look closely at the giottos, it has a built in head that will suffice until you need a true head.
Would one of these be a wise investment for someone looking to get more serious about photography? I've got a little piece of shit Velbon tripod that I'm afraid to mount even my P&S on. I don't have a bunch of great equipment yet, but I don't want to go around dropping it either.
It's solid set of legs.
That Giottos 9360 is so badass. I think Im going to buy it. Is it pretty solid?
how are amvona's tripods? they seem pretty cheap given the specs.
A lot of PPL on POTN swear by them. They just didn't fit my needs. So i bought the Giottos. I almost got one though.
i was searching for 9630...
Just ordered it. Not a bad deal for what it seems to be able to do.
I really like that tilt feature. Im also ready to pull the trigger. Then I'd have to sell my extra tripod
I got the Slik 700DX legs and Bogen 486 ball head. ~$150 shipped for the pair.
I LOVE the setup. It gets 7ft tall, < 1ft from the ground, and the single joint ball head is awesome and sooo easy to use. Oh, and it says it supports 18lbs, and judging by the build quality, I EASILY believe it.
The only thing I don't have is that crazy 'tilt' feature that aCab has. And while I can honestly say I've never 'needed' it, I am really jealous of it.
But yeah, I :heart: my setup.
