    slik sprint pro is able to support, but if you are looking for a steadier leg, maybe the slik 330dx or 340dx would fit the bill. they are all considered very light when you compared to manfrotto 190 series

    Check out the Benro Tripods offered at CS.com. Here is the link - http://forums.clubsnap.org/showthread.php?t=201502

    200SGD is reasonable budget for a tripod.

    the common ones of fair to good quality at various price range are manfrotto, gitzo, feisol, giottos, slik, PPCP and velbron.

    sprint pro come with a ballhead, but it get wear out pretty easily especially on heavier cam.
    if you intend to upgrade, maybe the 330/340dx will be a better option. but there is still a limit to the "upgrade", it can't hold those super heavy lens.

    Have bought my stuff from eugenep on several occasions and I went away with impressions everytime.

    Pushing your budget now better then having to change/upgrade later. Buy a good set of legs and you'll be set for a long long time!

    Hee hee, actually I went back to see just..
    Price is actually ok for me
    But then ar, I don't know much about tripods
    Which is why I wanted to go to shop and get a nice uncle to explain to me =D

    If my tripod is primarily used for say, landscape photography
    a)would i really need a ball head, i think pan tilt head would do, but i don't really know whether eugenep is selling that
    b)and which setup would be best, don't want something too heavy, no point buy already muscle pain don't use =D
