    My teenage niece has a Cannon 200d camera for crimbo. I am looking to buy a tripod and one of those remote shutters.

    Looking to spend between £50-100 tops.

    Thanks

    Has your niece expressed a preference for what type of head she would like on the tripod? Ball head, 3 way?

    Manfrotto make some good tripods, here are some entry level ones you may wish to consider which are in your price range:-

    Plenty of other brands out there, Benro spring to mind. I don't have a Canon camera, but I suspect a shutter release will cost you somewhere in the region of £5 - £20, people will probably ask you if you want a wireless or wired shutter release.

    Nice one, that is a relief as I noticed the manfrotto compact advanced tripod last night on the rainforest and picked it up for £41. :)
