Hi Keegy ..

 

Just had a look at these via Google.

 

They look a good quality range of tripods ... for the price.

 

Depends what model you are buying .. and how much you are paying for it !!

 

They look fine for a "first" tripod.

 

Wiggly. :rolleyes::rolleyes:

I've got a Slik 300 DX (which with a good head cost me all in all near £150) ... and also I have a bit more expensive Manfrotto tripod and head system. I use the Slik 95% of the time though, it's built like a tank, and does a fantastic job when out and about doing landscapes .... it will last you many many years. I see it has dropped in price a wee bit since I got one years ago ...

Now get yourself a remote release attachment.....

 

 

You can also use the timed release .........

Keegy, tripod is used mainly to give your camera a stable platform to stop any shake and movement = sharper pics

 

The timer allows you to press the shutter with a delay time before shutter fires, this allows the camera/tripod to settle before shot is taken = sharper shots

 

A remote release is either a cable (mechanical) or air operated, both need an attachment fitted to camera. I prefer an air release as no movement or vibration is passed to camera.

 

You may also have an Infra red remote built in your camera :)

Hi Keegy,

If you do not get on with that tripod let me know i will give you your money back for it.

Fishing seems to be my favorite form of loafing.

 

"Even a bad day of fishing is better than a good day of work."

 

I know the joy of fishes in the river through my own joy, as I go walking along the same river.

 

What do you think if the float does not dip, try again I think.
