Summary: I use it with my slr digital camera. I have Minolta Dimage which I bought a long time ago now. It's a good tripod with several height adjustments. It's sturdy/stable enough for the price paid; in other words I don't feel afraid that the tripod could fall and break my camera; there is no shaking of the tripod. It has an intuitive controls and easy/light to work with. I mostly use it at home.
Pros: Easily Adjusted, Good Footing, Lightweight, Locks In Tight
Summary: I was aware that it was one of those "You get what you pay for" things, but I was really surprised how cheap this thing felt when I took it out of the box. I've only taken it out on a couple of shoots, but really it's all I need right now- not bad if you just want a tripod and don't want to spend hundreds.
Summary: The Velbon DF-50 is a medium sized, 3 section tripod ideal for shooting in most situations. Strengths: The tripod is light whilst also being a tough/sturdy item. I found the DF-50 really quite easy to set up and break down again (issues I have noticed with other tripods). Retractable spikes in each of the feet are great for getting extra stability. At full extension the camera level is quite high meaning you wont have to duck to see what you are shooting.
Pros: Price is cheap
Cons: Doesn't really allow for photos from uneven ground
