Camera Tripod Recomendation

The times they are a-changin’.

This post seems to be older than 17 years—a long time on the internet. It might be outdated.

I’m looking to get a camera tripod. I have a Nikon D70 and would like a better tripod then the $5 1980’s era video camera tripod I currently have. It’s actually been a pretty good tripod. Not as stable as I’d like and it also doesn’t have a roll axis.

I’m not looking for the most expensive one out there, I’m mostly just looking for what you use or wished you used. If you don’t take photos, ask your friends who do!
