    PPCP tripod at $140 is not bad for its price.

    It's difficult to recommend a cheaper yet above average tripod for an SLR because you have to factor in your future better (thus, probably heavier) lenses and a cheap tripod won't do.

    The one recommended is good or you could consider the SLIK PRO series but it would also set you back slightly above S$100/-.

    The other alternative is to hit the B&S Forum.

    Buy once... buy a good one.

    What equipment are you going to put on the tripod???

    Can you imagine, putting a $3k equipment on a $70 tripod, do you feel safe to leave alone?

    That's right. Buy a good one, and call it a day. No more upgrades. How about a Gitzo? Lightweight, stable, and good. Though a bit pricey, but it's worth it.
