    Arrow Tripod selection

    Planning to get this:

    Manfrotto Code: 190D
    Description: QUICK CENTER COLUMN TRIPOD - MINI - BASIC
    Closed Length: 53cm
    Min Height: 17cm
    Max Height: 145cm (I am 166cm tall )
    Weight: 1.74Kg
    Load: 5.00Kg

    http://www.manfrotto.com/products/me...ontatore=primo

    Hope is avail in S'pore. Planning to use it with camera (70 - 200mm lens). Approximately how much does it cost? Pls recommend a tripod head to accompany with it. Most probably choosing a ball head type. Any comments?

    What's the maximum weight of your setup, including grip, flash and your heaviest lens? If it's less than 3kg, 308RC appears to be a decent choice!

    Yeah. Overall setup is less than 3Kg. 308RC is a Ball Head type rite? How much is the cost? This is the model no. of the tripod head? No brand name?

    John 3:16 is selling the 308RC at $65

    Remember to get extra plate for your 70-200mm lens.

    well, 308RC comes with a quick-release plate. Use this for your camera. Then unless you want to keep on removing this plate to use on 70-200mm (remember, this hv a tripod collar). Hence, we usually get another plate to fixed it on the 70-200 tripod colloar. So that you dun hv to keep taking off the plate from your camera.

    OIC. So, the plate is free with the purchase of 308RC?

    i bought a 2nd hand 190B with 308RC in mint condition at $100 for dieharder.

    Myself bought a 2nd hand 190B with Gitzo ball head at mint condition at $150

    for a brand new one...190B should be around $120 where as 308RC is around $65 at John.

    why not get 190B? it is anaodise to black, thus anti-rust.

    190D is silver version, and i dun think i can find it anymore in S'pore

    i can only find 190B, 190DB, 190CL and 190Pro.

    If u really want 190D, i think i have a contact of someone who is selling 190D...u want?

    Btw, I bought the black ver of 190DB at $126. Specs are the same as 190D. <- no stock. Why Manfrotto website state that 190D is a black ver? Juz to confirm, Manfrotto 308RC comes with a quick release plate for $65?

    Currently there's no stock for the 308RC ball head. The whole market seems to be out of stock for almost 2 months.

    the seller told me that his 190D is silver in colour, so i think the photo in manfrotto website is wrong.

    btw, u can change the screw lock to clip lock at $40 at John 3:16
