    Manfrotto 055 series tripod should be good for the height... costs about $350 with a nice ballhead though.... without knowing budget no way to suggest anything else ...

    Happy shooting
    I probably collect lenses more than I take pictures

    Hi guys,

    Need your advices here.
    I will be travelling overseas for 18 days and am hunting tripod now.
    I'm 1.68m
    Setup is 500d+50mm1.4+18-200mm (might buy a Flash if needed)
    Budget around 200-250 (+20%)
    Preferrably with ballhead.

    Any suggestion?

    From the CS'ers review, I think I will skip Benro

    Regards,
    R

    We are not tripod salesman here in CS.Go down to shops like CP/AP/OP or TK and check out their range of tripods.If you want me to recommend,i'll suggest you get a gitzo

    P.S.I don't see anything wrong with Benro even with CS'ers reviews.So what if CS'ers say Manfrotto no good?Then you won't get a Manfrotto?

    Agree with cleon, if u are particular about such hype, go for gitzo and pump up 500%, I assure u 100% satisfaction

    looking for an affordable pan and tilt tripod. will be used mostly for my relatively light camcorder. i am 1.8m tall, and want to have a portable tripod - maybe the 4 section one? as my previous tripod was a 3 section one, a bit bulky when i try to bring it along overseas.

    any recommendations? please indicate the approx price and shop where i can get it. thanks in advance.

    Use it for a time and determine for yourself.

    I'm a landscape person. Brought my new sirui T1204X out for a sunset, night shoot last Sat. I can't help but say I'm so glad I took the plunge to change to a CF tripod. It's so light! Now my gears are the ones screaming HEAVY! Friend who was carrying her manfrotto (alum) was so envious when she held my sirui! lol.

    Saved quite some sweat.
    Licence to shoot.
