Cheap and light
In reply to Nashua_Hawk, Jul 30, 2002

I have a $30 tripod from Ritz (QuantaRay brand) and a $20 tabletop tripod that collapses and will fit into my camera bag.

Everyone always talks about how cheap tripods are lousy. If you are shooting in a high wind or with a 10 pound SLR rig I'd probably agree. For the F707 my tripod is perfectly stable, very lightweight, and therefore I take it with me everywhere. And I don't have to worry about it getting damaged or stolen.

At this point, a heavier duty tripod is the last thing I would buy. I've only had wind be a problem 2 or 3 times out of hundreds of shoots. YMMV if you live in a windy place though.
