Light Tripods Can Actually Make Images Blurrier
Many beginning photographers use the lightest and cheapest tripod available. Most of these tripods are more trouble than they are worth. Rarely can you get anything decent for less than $200. I advise evaluating your needs and go to a good camera store to check out what is available. A few names of companies that generally make good tripods are Gitzo, Bogen, FEISOL, Manfrotto, etc. Here is a LiNK to some good stuff.
