Looking for an inexpensive tripod, will this do? VCT-R640
Dec 23, 2010

Seems it's good for not only stills but video too which I like and Amazon has this at a low price, but will it work with the Nex-5? Someone on Amazon says they use it with the Nex-5 just fine but I wanted to double check to make sure I was buying something appropriate.

What I find confusing is that Sony does not list any of the alpha cameras as being compatible with this tripod, but looking at the manual of one of the compatible models says the same thing that the nex manual says, which is to not use a tripod with a screw longer than 5.5mm long.

Anyone using one of these?
