    In a couple of weeks I will order my dslr. I've been saving forever so money is short and my wish list is long. To start I'll need a polarizing filter and a tripod , and would like to be able to fit the tripod into a backpack but I only have about 14 inches. It would be okay if the head comes off for packing. There are so many tripods and companies out there that I'm stumped. I need an inexpensive tripod that I can get about a year out of with occasional use. I need a flash to complete the basic gear list, so after that I can replace the tripod with a good one, but I'd hate to have a leg fail with three pounds of expensive camera and glass on a cement side walk. Could you help me with any low priced dependable suggestions for the short term? I live in the sticks and can't get to a camera store and will have to order online using your suggestions.

    Thanks as always, Tom Beard

    lol why didn't you name this "tripod question" instead?

    you could try the manfrotto mini modo... cheap... folds pretty small... not rated for 3 lbs though... but from the reviews i read it can hold more, but u gotta be careful...
