Haha tripod can also be very poisonous. I have changed 3 tripods up till nowOriginally Posted by Halfgeek
I have the R-2004 (not sure of the price anymore because I got it quite some time ago, but I don't think it is very expensive). Can read up the review that I have done quite a while back,
To me tripod I won't upgrade, get 1 reasonably good tripod and stick with it. HaOriginally Posted by spree86
Buy 1x good good one can dun think le
Well the usual brands that most people go to was,
1) Gitzo (The most expensive in the range, but very very good) - can get from almost anywhere that sell tripods.
2) Manfrotto (Can get almost anywhere that sell tripods)
3) Sirui (Can get from TKfoto)
4) Benro (can get from Benphoto)
5) Fotopro (can get from artworkfoto)
Anyway, all the mentioned tripod brands are excellent, and since your setup is not that heavy (not like some of ours set up), there is no need to get one that can withstand too heavy a maximum load.
As for monopod, it is a very useful tool too. Think of it this way, monopod is the third leg, while both your legs are the first 2 legs of a tripod
Anyway, monopod can be deployed very quickly and give you alot of flexibility as compared to your tripod. It however cannot provide as much stability as your tripod.
Btw... I have 2 tripods and 1 monopod... sometime I bring out all the three of them for my shooting needs...

For a starter, I think you can look into fotopro (Fotopro Tripod).
Fotopro are cheaper than even the Sirui and are very good in quality.
