If you are using wood tripod, before setting it up, check to make sure that there are no termites on the ground! Kidding.Originally Posted by ninelives
I bought one of those cheap tripods from Carrefour, and the strap on the cover's about to break off now..
Besides sewin it back, cos tht's really tedious.. Any ideas where I can get tripod covers?
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 ~$15? Or any generic cheap type will do as well. So long as it fits ur tripod.Originally Posted by VampTreSS
Thks! I'd try Cathay..Originally Posted by Garion
My very first tripod.. No point gettin expensive ones.. N no offence cos I didn't expect much frm somethin cheap.. Except, it broke on my first day out with it!
The tripod's fine though.. Jst the strap.. (@*&$(*&%#(*&%(*&#!!!!
Wait.. I bought the tripod for $30 n I'm gonna spend half of tht on a bag??
*go tie a noose with the broken strap to hang myself with*
I only use a Manfotto Table-top tripod. I love to travel light!
I use Manfrotto 190Pro or a Manfrotto table Top.
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.
