Tripods are expensive, well most of the good ones are. Having a solid system is a must if you want to capture solid jitter free images. I know what your thinking. Erik you never use a tripod. Hey! That's not true! I have three tripods in my van.
Investing big money is hard to do for a non sexy item like a tripod! But you know you need one or maybe two.
I bought the Fancier FC-270A tripod because I needed a head for my sliders and was under the impression that I could take the half ball mount off the head leaving a flat surface. Unfortunately the thread is not a common one so that idea didn't work. Since I had the system I decided to go ahead and do a review and share my thoughts on the most affordable fluid head tripod I have used. Its not perfect but for $149 it really is pretty good.
