    I need something light, yet sturdy.


    Id like it to be below 100$ , preferably in 50-60 range.


    Dont need anything fancy, just something that works semi decently.

    For my cheap 350D :o

    What makes a tripod good or bad? I mean, for the shadetree photographer, what's wrong with a $60 tripod? Serious question here...tripods are for stability and long-exposure shots, right? If I'm willing to use antiquated mounting screws (as opposed to any sort of quick release), why should I spend more than that on a tripod?

    2nd link supports 2.2 lbs.... which isn't very much so it'd only be worthwhile for point & shoot cameras.

    If OP doesn't need anything fancy, the Bogen 3001 with the 486 rc2:
