Another help with tripod thread
May 22, 2008

Hi all,

I'm a new S5Pro owner~ I need help with picking out a tripod for the new camera. I have no experience with buying tripods for cameras of this calibre... I used to use a cheap $20 tripod for my old s6000fd (which works great!). I'm unsure that tripod can hold the weight of the S5Pro... it's about 3 lbs with the Sigma 18-200mm attached to it.

I've search the forum.. and many talks about tripod brands like Gitzo, Bogen, etc... but I looked at these on B&H and they're really pricey! Can anyone recommend any lower priced tripod suitable for my needs? I try to take my tripod everywhere in case I want myself to be in the photo also. So I'm hoping for something light and easy to carry around too.

Thank so much.
