Our take on the Velbon CX-586
Velbon's economical and sturdy CX-586 makes a great entry-level tripod. Its three-section telescopic legs extend it to almost five feet tall great for snapping steady landscapes or capturing long video shots of your child on the soccer field. The included panhead with a joystick-style grip lets you tilt your camera up, down, or to the right, or smoothly pan your camera across a scene. Plus, the legs are made out of aluminum to ensure an incredibly stable, vibration-free platform for your camera.
This tripod neatly folds up to just over two feet long, and it's light enough to carry around for extended periods of time without straining your back or shoulder. The quick-release plate can be locked into the tripod socket of your camera and left in place. That way, you can quickly attach and detach your camera from the tripod when those unexpected photo opportunities come up.
