Which Tripod Should I Buy?

Get the Manfrotto MKC3-H01 (about $60). It’s not the right tripod for every situation, but it’s inexpensive and easy to carry. If you need a more serious tripod in the future, you’ll still use this one as your travel tripod. There are more detailed recommendations and descriptions of the features you should look for in Chapter 9, “Tripod and Monopod Buying Guide.”
