While it's true that there are plenty of cheap video tripods out there to match the wide assortment of off-brand camcorders, I wanted to ensure a higher level of quality when creating our ranking. As a result, we've only included models from brands respected in the photography industry, with the Neewer and E-Image models at numbers seven and four respectively riding that line. Vanguard seems to have slipped a little bit in the past few years, as its lineup was originally a draw away from more common companies of the early 21st century like Manfrotto and Slik. They still make a few nice tripods, but the likes of Benro and Manfrotto still hold the top spots for video, mainly due to their high-quality head construction, and particularly when looking at their counterbalance design.
