Velbon Sherpa 200R with PH157Q Panhead - $129 - more in soon
A good, economical photo-video tripod from Velbon. 3 Way panhead
with quick release plate. Even though it is technically a
photo tripod, it is half-decent for video, with a fairly
smooth pan and tilt operation. We've seen nothing else at
this price bracket that is better for video. Best only for
smaller video cameras or D-SLRs. Aluminum
tripod with 3 section legs. Warranty - 1 Year Canadian.
Maximum Height: 5' 5"/167 cm
Maximum Payload: 7.7 lbs/3.5 kg
Folded Length: 23"/62 cm
Kit Weight: 4.3 lbs/2 kg
Velbon QB-157 Release Plate - $19 - in stock
Fits Velbon Sherpa 200, 450 and 750 tripods.
Nest NT-777 Video Tripod - Reg $179 Intro
Special $159 - in stock
The Nest NT-777 fluid head tripod has a 360 degree pan range for uninterrupted shooting. The bowl mounted fluid head allows the tripod head to be set to level while shooting on an uneven surface. The ergonomic leg adjustments gives you a quick easy tripod height adjustment with strong locking. The 1.8m operating height makes for a useful operating height when you need to shoot over the top of a crowd. The mid-level spreader on this tripod provides extra stability, and the rubber feet prevent sliding on floorboards and smooth surfaces. Carrying case is included. 1 year Canadian warranty.
Maximum height: 5'10"/180 cm
Folded length: 34"/87 cm
Kit Weight: 7 lbs/3.2 kg
Max Load Capacity: 11 lbs/5kg - Note these are the manufacturer's specs. 6 lbs is probably a more realistic max load.
