Found 12th Mar
Just a heads up that this tripod is back in stock. I'm off on my travels later this week and wanted this tripod, it being an Amazon Basic (for some reason) I thought " It won't go out of stock, I'll order it the week I go, and maybe the price will even go down". Instead, it went out of stock and the price of the used and warehouse has crept up above £25. Very good reviews, seems great value for money, so if you're after one, get on this before it goes out of stock again!

lots of heat for the most expensive its been since october 2015...

I think I might have mentioned "back in stock" and my futile attempts to wait for it to drop in price. By all means (if you have time) wait and see if it drops in price, but there is always the possibility (as in my case) that it goes out of stock then spend the next few weeks after looking for an alternative and ending up contemplating spending £25+ on the thing from amazon warehouse.

yeah you did mention waiting on it coming back into stock
people tend to do that for good prices rather than the most expensive in over a year
tbh it doesn't look good but cant recommend anything better at this price range
Just make sure you only shoot on a calm day as these will wobble like a flag. I'd rather use jelly. Lightweight means hollow and will not provide good support for DSLR's or larger cameras. Probably fine for a point and shoot.

That's the thing, as you say, at this price point there's nothing else that comes close, even if you look at more expensive than this, I was keeping an eye on the amazon warehouse prices (when it was out of stock) and not only was the price creeping up, people seem to be buying it!

People buy at good prices, and at this price it's good value, and has been out of stock.

I take your point, it has been cheaper, but the last time it was cheaper than this for a sustained period looks like mid 2017, so unless there's one of those days where it drops and you manage to grab it, you're are best off getting it at this price and not waiting and end up with it being out of stock. And btw, it went out of stock at this price.

ps: I'd definitely spend more if I had a dslr! it does have a hook underneath to weigh it down though.

Have one, it's ok but the little clasps will **** up your fingers and it doesn't seem totally sturdy, and it doesn't have bubble levels for all 3 axes.

I got the student discount and it came round to be cheap! thanks for the spot
I bought (well, boyf did) the 52" version of this amazon.co.uk/dp/…SA0 for use with a Praktica Spotting Scope amazon.co.uk/gp/…0B2 but he says he can't secure it properly (it supposedly can handle the weight)? Bit of a long shot, but wondering if anyone has any ideas.

generally they are a bit optimistic for real usage as the weight will be assumed to be exactly balanced and level over the centre column
i see the scope has a tripod collar.. is it adjustable at all to change the position of where it screws into the tripod?
does it support it ok when kept level?

Cheers, Brilly, I'll ask him more about it when he's on Skype and edit this post.
Got this yesterday. Used it as platform to photograph constellations last night. Splendid piece of kit for the money. Much better than the £13.99 48in tripod bought previously, which is now to be returned. Timely post. Thanks.
