Anyone have a recommendation for a good tripod? And can you get a decent one locally or will I have to order online?

I just bought a Fotopro C5i on ebay for $190. That price includes shipping and taxes. Researched for a couple weeks and could not find anything decent locally for my $150 to $200 budget.
Received the C5i week and it is an awesome tripod for that price range. Ontario seller (ordered mine on a Saturday night and received it the following Friday). It also can be converted to a monopod and comes with a very nice carrying bag with side pouch for accessories and tools. These retail at Henry's for $229 plus shipping and taxes. Henry's have the C5i on sale right now for $190.

If your budget is not in that range take a look at the Velbon c400 for sale on Kijiji PEI for $40. Less than half price. Great for video and photo applications.

If you are near Summerside or Kensington and want to see the C5i let me know.

Whats your budget? That will really dictate how decent of a tripod who can get. There are good options in every price range though.

The Fotopro C5i looks very nice but I was hoping to spend closer around the $100 range. I just need something that will last a year or two then I could look at a better tripod.

I bought 2 of the mid sized units from the source when they were on for 8.99. not bad for bic lighter tripods and nice and light for your sling or back pack camera case.

I have a Velbon VGB-3 that would get you started. I'll sell it for $25.

Here's some forum comments on it - http://photography-on-the.net/forum/sho ... p?t=895018

PM me if interested.
