Hi All,

I have the opportunity to buy this tripod at a great price and it says that it will accommodate Canon camera's.

I am looking for a cheap tripod, but I need to know if it will handle the weight of my camera with my lens attached to it as my current tripod drops forward and I think it will soon drop forward and break my lens.

Can anyone offer an opinion on this tripod or know if it can handle my camera with the lens attached which weighs around 500g.

Thanks,

Here is a link to the tripod. I'm pretty sure it is not 100% authentic, but I do need to get a new tripod:

One of the reviews from other auctions:

"This is only suitable for Pro Point and Shoots! not for DSLRs." by:
Member id samitha1985 ( Feedback Score Of 9 )

This is a very shaky tripod. If you want to mount a good DSLR on it, dont even think about it. But for a Pro Point and shoot, this is an ideal choice.


This is the cheapest i'd go:

Save up some more money. I can't imagine your existing tripod is so bad that this one would be considered an upgrade.

Yeah, you know... You guys are right!! I think I should just save some cash and then make the move and buy it.

The other one that I looked at now looks good, the Dolica, but I do think I will save and buy a SLIK as they are really good and at a good price point.

Thanks again!!
