Tripod Recommendations

Hey guys,

I just bought a canon sd990 and absolutely love it. I plan on taking some shots that will require a tripod. Can anyone recommend a moderately priced tripod that will work with the camera specified?

Thansk in advance!

You really do have a lot of options since the camera does not weigh much. I guess just decide whether you need to drag the tripod around a lot, or whether you want a portable one...

Portable: Joby Gorrillapod, cheap, small, very cool
Not-Portable: Any lower end Bogen/Manfrotto tripod will do you well, possibly the 718 legs with a small ballhead, on bhphotovideo.com they have a few less expensive kits that hold 2.2 lbs, that should suit your camera well...

give it a go!

i just picked up the manfrotto 190XPROB with 804RC2 head and love the setup

edit: just saw you have only a baby camera! ok for something like that my recommendation might be too much. you could prob even just pick up one of those gorilla tripods or a tabletop manfrotto

Bogen/Manfrotto has served me well. Highly suggest getting a swivel squeeze grip mount with quick disconnect. Has been invaluable for things like weddings and sporting events when I need to swap lenses quickly and don't have the luxury of carrying two cameras.
