    Any recommendation or anyone going to sell off their basic stand.

    Finally I can vote for this thread now....

    Last week got my Manfrotto 190CXPRO3 with 488RC2 Ball Head...
    The weight of the tripod is light and steady too.

    For the ball head is a bit heavy but have 2 way adjustment.
    I find is very useful is you going to shot Pana pix.

    Overall, The tripod setup with ball head and put on my 450D is stand very firm and solid...

    I just picked up a Manfrotto 190CXPRO3 + 488 RC2 head too. $420 + $140 = $560. So I guess I'll have to vote Manfrotto now too.

    Would you recommend the 190 tripod in aluminium?
    Since i will only be using in Singapore, so the weight is not an issue, as I dun intend to travel with massive gear.

    What you guys think?

    Well... in my opinion, Manfrotto already make great tripods, so I have no concerns for their reliability. The criteria I had in mind when I chose the 190CXPRO3 were:

    - Weight, but this is a non-issue for you
    - Bearable load
    - Horizontal column (do you need this?)
    - Maximum height without extending the center column

    So, if the tripod height works for you (I have to stoop a little for my CXPRO3 unless I extend the column) and since you don't mind the weight, go for it.

    Canon might not be compatible with Nikon
    It is the camera, not the photographer.
