    Sorry, this may be a really stupid question, but I'm literally figuring all this out on my own with very little money and no other help.

    I have a Nikon D50 and have enjoyed using it. For several reasons (including for more stability in my pics and for a class I've finally signed up for), I need a tripod. I'm looking for something on the low end of the scale.

    My question is this: are all tripods for all cameras? If not, how do I know if one will work for my D50? And how do I find a cheap one?

    I did find this one online ( that looked ok and indicated a Nikon, but wanted to make sure I wasn't doing something stupid.

    Welcome to the forum.

    Almost all tripods have a 1/4 (20) stud...and almost all cameras have 1/4 (20) thread on the yes, for the most part, all tripods are for all cameras.
