    Hey, I was just curious if anyone had any suggestions for a solid tripod with a quick release for my Nikon D40, also I'm on a slim budget so it can't be too expensive.

    I have a Samsonite one from Wally World. Paid 18 bucks for it, seems pretty solid, and there's a plate that screws into your tripod hole on your camera that clips out pretty easy.

    Walmart has tripods for about $30 - their "high end".

    It worked well for me and my kit 28-135IS. If you are using kit lens, I can't imagine it being much heavier then the 28-135.

    Does not work well with the 70-200IS (much heavier).

    I just bought a tripod based on a recommendation from Lyncca. It's the Manfrotto 725B. Supports up to 7.7lbs. It's very sturdy with a ball head. It should hold your camera fine. The $112 price tag is great for what you get. I wouldn't recommend the walmart style tripods, you may end up breaking your camera in the process and at the very least get fuzzy shots.
