i got one that was similar ( same brand anyway ) a few weeks ago from tesco, think it was the same price.

Ive got the Fuji s5800 and it fits great on it. And should be fine for all those sort of camera's and compact.

My view is, if your prepared to pay over £300 for a heavy SLR camera, then you really should buy an expensive tripod.

But for the everyday photographer with the lighter camera's, this is a great tripod, which is lightweight and affordable.

Agreed. My motto is: Buy cheap, buy many times. Buy quality (expensive), buy once.

i have this exact one and its lasted 2 years now...with no signs of wear, its been used for my little pentax a10, my jvc camcorder and now my kodak bridge p880.

Voted hot, great price. Will try and pick one up over the next few days.

Are they available in Ipswich?

I've had one of these for a while. They are ok for DSLR's but don't even think about it for Video....the pan isn't smooth enough. They are not the stablest tripod so no good for outdoor windy conditions, even with it weighted down it shakes too much. It would be fine for indoor static shots I suppose. Good Price :)
#9
thanks for this. Going to get someone to try ASDA for me :D
#10
if you're using a DSLR consider spending alittle more say £50-60 on a all metal tripod - coz this tripod won't be great for long exposures (for say night shots or capturing flowing water)

for more basic uses get this

You'd get a half decent tripod head for £50, like a manfrotto 486RC2, but then you'll need a half decent set of legs for it too. You're looking at £100+ before I'd even consider mounting my gear on it.

For point and shoot or bridge cameras I'm sure this would do the job though, as others have said.
#12
i got one of these 2 mths ago at £9.99 ASDA. so not so hot. think its just normally stocked. AND i alsue use it with my Sigma 50-500mm lens without any problems. Only tightned everything once because i weante to service it is all. a good tripod but the price is standard.
#13
I got this From Asda at this price about 2-3years ago
good quality, used with my bridge cam and camcorders (1 old Canon that is about 650g)
still like new.
Great tripod, but old price...

Not a new deal but still a good price...
#14
just been to my ASDA (Eastbourne) and its marked as £14.63 but when taken to the till scans at £10.

good find - will do me for starters!
#15
For anyone looking for an even cheaper alternative, Maplin do this one http://www.maplin.co.uk/Module.aspx?ModuleNo=45697 in store for around £7.00. Its marked up at £19.99 on the website.

Good luck with that. I wouldn't recommend spending the best part of a grand on a lens then trusting it, plus your camera body, to a £10 tripod. :giggle:

You're doing yourself a disservice with as long a lens as that on a £10 base though! Even with IS etc you'd be better getting something a bit sturdier, especially for using the long end. Even light stands cost more than this.

Just got this tripod for a MiniDV camcorder. It is quite light and well constructed, though the plastic looks cheap.
