I have been looking on eBay and used Manfrotto's are cheap! For under $200 you can even get carbon-fiber tripods!

Say, if I get a light aluminum tripod and hang my camera bag, will it not get the stability of the heavy manfrottos? what's wrong with this picture?

Is there any out there that are decent for $100 or less?

Spend $200 on a Manfrottto. Don't mis-under-estimate the value of a good tripod and head. $10K lenses are not worth a dollar (or euro) if they are not steady-as-a-rock during exposure.

PS - you can always make a tall tripod shorter, but you can never make a short tripod taller.
