    I was wondering the same thing. Unfortunatly being the only person on OT that makes a normal salary, my definition of "not break the bank" is 50 bucks or so.

    How about instead of good tripod, we say decent tripod.

    Plus the $21 shipping :rolleyes:
    But still, it's 100% better than the cheap pos that I had.

    good set of legs will last a decade or more. just save up another month if you cant swing it this month.

    whats the point of needing to use a tripod and then using one that isn't steady.

    waste of time.
