  • Pros: Folds Small, Good Stability, Lightweight, Unfolds Quickly

Good To Start

  • Excerpt: I've been using this for the Nikon D5100 I also purchased with the gift money. So far I've been pretty happy. This is the first tripod I've ever used so I have nothing to compare it to but I've been getting good night shots and it doesn't seem to be blowing around in the wind in the timelapses I've done. The quick release is great and I've gotten some nice panoramic pictures as well. The one thing I would say is it's a lighter duty tripod.
  • Pros: Affordable, Easy to use, Folds Small, Lightweight, Pretty Stable, Unfolds Quickly
  • Cons: Unstable

Light and sturdy.

  • Excerpt: This was a gift from my wife, with a few hints from me. I have used this tripod to steady my d3100 with various lenses including the Nikon 55-300. It works great for my style of sunset shooting which sometimes requires a very low placement of the camera. I prefer its compact size over other tripods I have used as well as its relatively light weight. My only complaint is the head's side handle has to be removed for compact storage and transport. Still, a great product.

Great Value. Close to carbon fiber.

  • Excerpt: Great little tripod. I keep it in the trunk for backup and when I need to pack-it in. I've used it with a Nikon D90 and Nikkor 70-300 with good stability.

Slik Pro 340dx Tripod

goboulder, PriceGrabber

  • Summary: Slik Pro 340dx is a relatively (!) cheap, lightweight, small, and sturdy tripod that I ever had. This tripod is the best for travel unless you have huge-diameter zoom lenses. It is lightweight and small. If there were a hook at the bottom of the center column for additional weight, it would have been a plus. It may be somewhat unstable in the windy environment. But in the ordinary usage, it will give you the best mobility with huge advantages of a tripod.
  • Pros: Lightweight and Small, but sturdy.
  • Cons: a hook for more weight on the center column would give more stable standing.
