Manfrotto Compact Tripod
Great tripod! I’ve gone through my selection of cheap tripods over the years and I finally decided to spend a little more money to actually be able to enjoy using my tripod.
For an affordable price, I am very happy with the Manfrotto MKCOMPACTLT-BK Compact Tripod (Black) (affiliate) with Quick Release Ball Head. I love the ball head. It is so easy to use. It has a with +90°/-90° orientation grooves and repositionable locking lever. I’m using this tripod with my Canon 7D and it feels very secure on the tripod. The quick-release plate also has a safety lock on it, so it isn’t ever ejected by accident. Great tripod! I definitely recommend it!
