Help choosing a tripod
Posted December 3rd, 2012 - 3:26 pm by from Ingolstadt, Germany (Permalink)
Hi people!

I am beginner hobby photographer. Recently i bought a nikon 3200 and now i want to start making pictures in the night.. I never had or worked with a tripod before and i read some blogs about choosing it but their conclusion is that i must buy a $ 300-1000 one, that is far away from fitting in my budget, thats why i ask for your help.

I found this 2 options:

Like i said my camera is a nikon 3200(500gr) and im 1,63 meters high. What tripod would you guys recommend me?

Thanks a lot!

Hi Juan,

I have a Manfrotto 055C. What I don´t like about it is the size. It´s not even the weight.
So if I would buy one I´d go for something compact that fits in your bag.
The Slik Mini Pro is what I had on my list. But then again this was some years ago so there might be some better deal around now.
