I'm looking for advice on a budget lightweight travel photo tripod, preferably under $100. This will be mainly used with a D5100/Nikon 18-200 VR lens combo. I found the Manfrotto MKC3-P01 compact tripod online for around $60. Unfortunately, the photo head is not changeable. I do like that its folded height is under is under 20 inches, which will make it ideal for travel. Any alternate budget tripod suggestions, under 20 inches, would be appreciated. I may be able to stretch my budget up to $150, if the tripod specs fall within my criteria.
