Need some advice here... Ive been to the IT show yesterday. Been thinking of buying a tripod. But I think I only managed to see the steinzeiser tripod. Couldnt find manfrotto or slik. Anyway, I am contemplating between the steinzeiser 3013 which costs $150 (comes with a ball head i think) and the slik (forgot the model) which costs $170 (comes with a simple head) from cathay photo. Now, I do not really know which one to get. So, I need some opinions, anyone can tell me which is a better buy. Also, I heard that steinzeiser is made in china whilst slik is made in japan. My bro told me that china goods not so realiable, but thats just a subjective remark. So..... any ideas???
