I currently have a very cheap tripod, Dynex DX-TRP60, http://edsphotographs.weebly.com …571714300_p3_i1_w500.jpeg
Now I don't use it much, when I do I use it to take landscape style pictures. When taking vertical pictures, the head tilts/adjusts more than what I want. Again, this is cheap so can't expect much.
Now, I don't have a high budget for a new tripod but have been looking at amazon on different Manfrotto tripod that range from $60 and up. I would like to stay below $100, but although they are Manfrotto, not sure if the lesser priced Manfrotto are of "lower" quality. I am looking for a head that will stay put and not have to worry that it will adjust through time. I went to a local camera store and the sales person recommended Manfrotto Element. He said this is more than sufficient. Still more than what I want to spend but then again I have no knowledge on tripods.
Are there other "good" brand tripods that fit my needs?
I have Canon 80d, Canon 50mm and Tamron 17-50mm. Not looking to buy a larger lense. Plan on getting a 18-135mm lense. Thank you for the help.
