I need to record some videos. Nothing too hard out but want a tripod that could probably adjust up to about 1.5~2m. 

 

Want to be able to connect Camera's And/Or Mobile Phones. 

 

Does anyone have one they want to get rid of? How much am I looking at? I am not fussed about getting something second hand (dont care about scratches etc) as long as its not partially broken.

Purchased this last week from AliExpress after reading online reviews. For $120 incl delivery, this carbon fibre tripod is really good. It's great build quality and very lightweight.

To Be honest I have no idea what I am looking for. I presume the connector on the top is universal standard?

Have two spare. Yo can have one for $25 in Auckland.

 

 

Note that for attaching smart phone you would need to source the "head" from the selfie-stick.

This is how the Head for smart phone from the Selfie-Stick looks like.

 

The thread for the bolt is the same as on any photo tripod.

 

On this photo the head is attached to another photo mount. It is built to make videos of the cat from the ground level. Not selling this one.
