    Most will probably say save and buy a good tripod. But it is hard to take photos using tamron 70-300 lens without tripod, i would have to collect 100£ for a month. I am student and i dont have any work.
    I have nikon d5000.
    One thing that makes this tripod stand out from other cheap ebay tripods is it has 5 year warranty. Maybe a cheap trick to get people buying, but i think it would make an usable first tripod to own.
    Best would be, if someone had some experience with cheap ebay tripods.
    Tripod itself:Digital SLR camera big tripod for Nikon Coolpix D5000 on eBay (end time 24-Aug-10 18:30:52 BST)

    Not worth to buy? Or is it....?

    Are you outside of US? I just picked up a really good Dolcia tripod, proline for $74 off Amazon and it stands really tall and it's very strong and have not had any problem yet. 4KG is not that much of weight support to be honest.

    I think I have the exact same one. Didn't buy it of ebay.

    Its not exactly the best tripod out there, but its good enough for me. It has a quick release and can take horizontal and vertical pics. Its fairly sturdy, I guess. I haven't used any high quality tripods so I can't compare it to anything else.

    I rarely use a tripod tho.
