Thread: Good Tripod Recommendations

    Question Good Tripod Recommendations

    Hi All,

    I recently am finding a good tripod, I will use this tripod for outdoor portraits/ studio photography... Any recommendations? My budget is $100-180. I don't mind exceeding a little... (Not over 200)

    Thanks!

    Ok........
    if you have kids, you should know how many time you have to repeat the same old things to them.........EVERYDAY......... lol


    anyway, I assume adults members don't behave the same way as kids do, so less leeway for them.

    BTW, TS, Here are some of the brands to consider with your budget and where you can get them.

    Sirui - TK Foto
    Fotopro - Artworkfoto
    Jusino - Red Dot Photo

    Personally, I use and recommend Sirui. Look at the R2004 or the T1004x

    what's Kelele?

    Anyway, TS, if it's of any help, I bought a Sirui R2404 with G20 BH recently. Pretty sturdy and legs not very thin. Height is quite decent, though I must say it's quite heavy. Can head down to TK Foto and look for Uncle Philip. He's the tall guy..

    Thanks everyone for the recommendations , well although I'm 13, i do save up myself to buy my camera gear... (Except for the actual camera), so I guess I've been thinking about buying a decent tripod since 11 or something :P

    checkout link to 'scapes' and buy sirui tripod to get the same quality of images!
    haha just joking la you need much more than that

    agree with recommendations, just note that R2004 is quite heavy at 1.7kg, try it out at TK Foto see if you can imaging yourself lugging it around. It you feel lazy to bring out tripod you will not bring it out! T1004X is much more compact when folded, but max height is much less, good for overseas travelling
    Or you can consider getting the R1004 (some would recommend upgrading the head to G20). Good for the price! With my limited experience, think S'pore don't have big gusts of winds so still sturdy enough here heh...
    Checkout TK Foto's websites to see the specifications of the different Sirui tripods (don't think I can link to their website from here, though you see link from this page: http://www.clubsnap.com/forums/tk-fo...1-tk-foto.html)
