My tripod is crappy. I bought it at my first attempts at HDR back in the D5000 days. Its a $30 tripod so you get what you pay for.

I dont use it much because the head is made of plastic parts that tends to bend when I have a big lens mounted on it like the 70-200.

I have to use mirror up all the time on this one because else, the tripod shakes a bit when the shutter clicks.

I know of some tripod buying guides; but most suggest $7-800 tripods; and up to 4 figures tripods. Steep price...

I guess this is the price for a good one. I just have a really hard time to digest it and pull the trigger.

I should get another one before something bad happens.
