    Kalimar K-492 tripod. Really light, not as sturdy as my heavy duty bogen but this will do great when I hike where I will just use it with my remote, delay shutter or fast shutter. I paid $8.99 for it. Sweet! Very little plastic part on this puppy. Only on the grips.

    Not bad! As long as it can support the weight and you're using remote, why not??

    I guess you can't go wrong for under $10, but I've been spoiled with all the speed of my tripod. I can't deal with unscrewing the legs, and screwing the camera in.

    I have a tripod that has a quick release on the camera, and also quick releases on the legs. Plus I think plastic is better for hiking... it's more light weight.

    I used to have a tripod just like the one you found, but I could never go back now.
