    I use a dynex tripod, it was very cheap but what the ****.... it does the job. If you don't mind spending money, go with bogen.

    Yep. It keeps the camera steady. You don't need a built in TV with your tripod.

    I also have the dynex tripod from best buys. yes it is a cheep tripod but it dose work. Mine is in the water a lot so I didn't want to but an expensive one. If your shooting around the yard or for landscape shots its fine. I even used it a couple of times to hold a laser level at work.

    awesome then.. i get dynex for crazy cheap prices.. since i am an employee it is 5% over what cost is and b/c it is a Best Buy brand it will probably be like 10 bucks... lol

    Depends on the weight and size of your photo gear (camera and lenses if you have SLR). Got a 'cheap' one as a present. Did not work for my camera, as it could not hold it in 'trickier' positions, so I traded it in. Get something better (usually = more expensive), like Manfrotto, if you plan to get more serious.
