    Default Is Velbon Tripod good??

    I would like to know whether if Velbon tripod is good?

    I'm kinda looking at these:
    http://www.velbon-tripod.com/sherpa.htm

    Its look more of smaller in size then manfrotto.

    What could be the differences in between, Manfrotto and Velbon?

    Anyone care to enlight me for this? THanks

    Cheers!

    I dunno this lah, but the Slik 330DX is lighter at 1.7KG and should hold you FZ20 + flash + tele.

    Im itch for tripod again.

    Im thinking is Velbon tripod good or not. I checked that before the moving of the head is as good as the ball head. Smooth is the word! V.Good. Was quoted $190 for Sherpa 750.

    Im kinda thinking of that and at the same time Im considering shall I just get Manfrotto strightaway? Or rather that I should think if I ever upgrade to darkside, does my Camera still able to hold on to Velbon tripod? Because Im not too siao on the lens.

    Care to guide me?
