Looking for advices on a tripod

Hi, I am looking for an inexpansive tripod and I saw this one on eBay:

http://cgi.ebay.ca/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2953043115&category=30094&rd=1

Does somebody have experiences concerning this tripod?

Thanks a lot!

I have a lot of doubts. I wonder how the remote control works. Most LANC controllers cost more than what this complete tripod sells for!

If you are interested in an inexpensive but good tripod (but will cost a lot more than $70), I would try looking for a Libec from Zotz Digital (a DVinfo.net sponsor).

Thank you for your reply Nathan!

Lokking on past threads, I found that Libec and Manfrotto tripods are the most recommanded. I probably will buy one of these models to have a better product for the price.

Thanks again,
