    Looking for an affordable Tripod. Found a used Bogen 3001 Tripod with a 3030 quick release head for $50.00. Is this a decent tripod for the price?

    I thought anything made by Bogen is good stuff.

    True enough, just wondering if this particular one is worth $50. It looks kind of old...

    It's not bad. You'll probably want to upgrade the head to something like a 486RC2 if you're on a low budget.

    go for it. I have the 3021 which is a bit heavier but have used the 3001. The head is a bit of a pain but is still pretty sturdy, and the combo should be fine for everything except shooting in a gust.
