I bought a tripod the other day. It wasn't very expensive and it's a "travel" tripod so the legs pull out and can be retracted to different lengths.
I was testing it out and I had so much trouble getting one of the legs back in! I had to really force it and the palm of my hand got caught and pinched. Then I said some bad words and threw the tripod down. I guess it's got some pretty sharp edges because it cut the skin in like a half moon shape. arghhhhhhh.
It's fine now but I think I will just leave the legs at this same height and not bother with "folding" it up again! Now it's not really a "travel" tripod, but that's not a big deal anyway. It's better than hurting my hand!
I got some more film photos developed too, this one I took with the tripod;
My fabulous copy of Jane Eyre;
