    Hi,
    I'm looking to get a tripod for making some videos with a DSLR/mirrorless camera and i need it to be at least 185cm,
    and i have a budget of $120. Any suggestion on what tripod would be good?

    I've thought about the SLIK PRO 700DX. It's 190cm and has good reviews, however it does not have a fluid head.

    I think you're going to have to increase your budget a bit.

    The most basic video pan head for a small, light camera will run you at least $80, without legs. That will not be a fluid head (although the maker might suggest that it is). And a set of slightly wobbly legs of that height will run you at least $100.

    OTOH, you might be able to find something on eBay or Craig's List or the used department of your local camera store in your budget.

    FWIW, tripods don't become obsolete. It's a place where you might want to spend more and buy something that will serve your projected future needs.
    Post production is not an afterthought!

    Yeah, I've got one for you.

    I have this DAVIS & SANFORD tripod and it goes up to 183cm, it is VERY sturdy, has a fluid head, and is only $30 more than what you requested.

    That's a great point. I'll offer a bit more for a tripod then.
