    That's still not helping. Give us a number, "top 5 kind of thing" is so vague.

    Below 70 is considered very cheap for tripods. You can look at weifeng aka fancier tripods, they fit your budget and are rather decent.

    Wah, $70 for a tripod and ball head???? You won't get a very good one leh.
    Even if you find one, I think you will regret. Cause it won't be stable.

    That's a pretty good budget and since you want it light, you can consider carbon fibre tripods. Have a look at Sirui, Giottos and Manfrotto tripods, choose the tripod according to the height you prefer and the weight of your heaviest setup.

    I have seen a few Sirui T1004x with G10 ballhead going at that price in the B&S, maybe you can keep a lookout. The tripod is rather short though, you can check it out in the shops first.

    Haven't found anything that meets all/most of the criteria on my 'want' list for <$200
    But yeah, $150 is decent enough especially if it's for the legs only

    Er... no. For tripod, you want it as high as possible (stability cannot be compromise though). For monopod, then yeah, get one that is your height.

    Tripod wise... sometime you would want to take photos at a wierd elevated angle, so you need your camera to be position as hight as possible to shoot downward.
    I am not a photographer, just someone who happened to have a couple of cameras.

    I think if the tripod is up to about chest level, it should be all right. Add in the ballhead, base plate, and camera, and the viewfinder should be about mouth level. That way I can still see the top LCD even when legs are fully extended

    Up to personal preference too...
