    My new tripod cost more than many cameras. It's my fourth. I purchased a brand-new Marchioni Tiltall years ago. Still have it, but it's a little dusty, like me. Purchased an eye-level Gitzo.

    I humbly suggest that a tripod and transparency film can teach you more about photography than you can see and remember. But they do make it seem possible.

    I have often suggested to budding photographers to spend less on the camera and one lens, and budget for a tripod and flash. Both are less than convenient, but for many images, they add possibilities in leaps and bounds. Simply, it can be more fun.

    On second thought, if you manually expose and focus, it can be more fun. If not, then your priorities are likely different.

    A Slik will be fine, esp for a lighter 35mm camera...using mirror lockup will also help exposures. I took my Slik with me on my first trip to Europe, nice and light and it was great for all types of shots, including long night exposures.

    You can judge for yourself after you see you your images, but it certainly is better than nothing.
