darrene, Have a look at ephotozine discussions. On 23rd June a post by Irishkate was on the same lines. There were several suggestions and helpful pointers as to what to have a look at and buy.
I recently bought a vanguard alta pro with a 100 ball head for £133 on amazon, brilliant for the style of photography I shoot! Plus it may be a little steep in price but it's sturdy and bends in loads of positions, google it and see what u think, but I think this is one of the best pieces of kit I have so far invested in hope this was helpful

A tripod for what, what are your needs.
I have the old version of one of these, don`t be put off by the cheap price, its superb.
That's the very one that came to my mind too...! Looks pretty good value for that asking price doesn't it..
I have three different tripods, all for different uses, the largest ans most solid is taller than me, about 30 years old and seriously tough, it would probably out live me
My smallest is this one, the older version of that tripod I just linked to, I only paid about £17 on Amazon.
And its still available
Wife has one of those, it's as light as most carbon tripods.......
Which one Ade, the latest version has spiked feet, opens wider, and has a quick release and is probably better for low level stuff.
That's the fella.....Less than £40 as I remember, she hardly ever uses the damn thing which is why she got a cheap one. Whinged for ages about how she wanted a light tripod only for it to sit in the hallway most of the year.....Women eh?????
Hey ade why did the wife want a light tripod she has you to carry the heavy one for her
