    feisol 3401 + the new RRS BH40 (lever version). (total $ still >$1K)

    any one got better option?
    i bought the Feisol 3301 for around S$300+.
    the Foba Superball for around S$220+-.
    less than S$1k/. if my maths din't fail me.

    But "Fat Auntie" 3301 got no resale value leh. At the rate we upgrade and dump our toys, it might end up collecting dust.....

    Me got a 055Pro - it is very big, very bulky and heavy, very solid and not expensive. But the number of times I carried it out can be counted with my fingers..... and somewhat dusty, but still no rust yet.
    I love big car, big house, big lenses, but small apertures.

    why do you need the resale value? use until it drop lah. dun see why you have to sell it again when it is a good tripod.

    that is 'fat auntie' to u. i think u're ill-informed.

    and by the way, this Feisol CT3301 carbon fibre tripod weighs less than 2kg. top it off with the Foba superball, still around 2kg+-. fat? even my old frail arms can swing it wildly at hooligans in little Singapore. wat a 'toy'!

    i used to own the 055proB. big, heavy(read=weighs a ton!). solid, yes.

    but i sold it to finance Feisol 3301. best ever decision i ever made in a tripod purchase. my weak back and trembling hands have never been so thankful. and till today, my tripod's looking good and the money's well spent as i use the tripod regularly.

    and if u're really getting a good(read=expensive) tripod, u better be someone who use tripods on a regular basis. otherwise, ur expensive investment might end up collecting dust like our dear friend's here.

    resale value? heck... never thought of letting go this tripod.

    S$600+ for a Gitzo carbon tripod? not for me for i don't use long heavy tele.

    Hey, ask for Feisol in HongKong, and they will give you a 'fat aunty'. It sounds like that in canto.

    Cab try SLIK's AMT series if you want it to be solid, light and afforable. (when comparing tripods of same weight etc)
