    After using 488RC2 I felt is too heavy for me...and kinda of balance due to the heavy ball head.

    Now thinking of changing to a better and lighted BH...

    Anyone able to recomm me a good, light and soild BH...

    - 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.

    Hi, Wzierbovsky, juz wanna ask u..

    The Nikon D300 is already pretty heavy in terms of its weight.. Adding a Zoom lens like the 18-200mm to it, will ur tripod be able to handle it? Im thinking of getting a tripod but.. still clueless as to which brand/model to get..

    The 1st brand I heard is Gitzo but it costs up to $1k++

    Heya; well the maximum load I ever use is around 3.9 kg, assuming D300 + SB600 + heaviest lens of 2kg + filters + ballhead totals to around 3.9 kg. That's still under the legs' rated 5kg. And the 18-200mm is much lighter than the 2 kg I've put above.

    Your needs may vary though, but I think the 190CXPRO3 will suit most amateurs.

    Depends on how heavy a tripod you want to carry around and also how heavy is your longest lens.

    Once you know, decide on what you need and buy.
