    If you are using wood tripod, before setting it up, check to make sure that there are no termites on the ground! Kidding.

    Well, no offence really but what you pay for is what you get. Maybe try Cathay Photo at Peninsula? There is a tripod section there which sells tripod bags as well. Get a cheap one, think the Slik tripod bag costs ~$15? Or any generic cheap type will do as well. So long as it fits ur tripod.

    Default Which Tripod???

    Hi

    I am not expert in Tripod, hence, need to seek advice from all the Clubsnap Jedi Knight and Jedi Masters.

    I am currently having a Sony Cybershot F828 (weigh about 1 kg),
    my Sony F32X Flashlight (weight about 260 grams),
    and Sony Teleconverter (weight about 560 grams),
    when combine together, the total weight would be around 2 kgs.
    Though it is not DSLR, it is quite heavy as a digicamera.

    There are good tripod brand in the market, like Slik, Manfroto and so on.
    Although I have done research and looking around, I still cracking my head and unable to decide which is better.

    I like to take marco shot, night shot , scenery hot , telephoto shots and holiday photo taking; mountains, seas, would like to go to archaelocial place like Cambodia and so on.
    Please comment which is better base on my needs and requirement.
    Should I take a heavy or light one.
    Which ball head and price???
