I've been in the market for a good low price, light weight tripod, and have run into a guy on craigslist selling this little guy for $60. It includes a head, but he doesn't know what the exact model of it is. So my first question is, is it worth $60? It's been discontinued so it's hard to find any decent quote on prices around the web.
My second question is, would this be a decent setup for a gripped 30D + 70-200 f4l + 430 EX combo? Or would it be too unstable?
Third question (last one I swear ). I'm 5'10, and I've heard that this tripod may be a bit short. I don't mind slightly bending over to operate it sometimes, but if it's going to be causing me a lot of back strain I may have to think twice about getting it. Keep in mind I'm just an amateur so I wont be using it for extended periods of time.
