Thread: Tripod and Ballhead for K10D

    Default Tripod and Ballhead for K10D

    I am currently shopping for a tripod and a ballhead for my K10D. Right now i only have the kit lens. I doubt if I would be buying a lens that is more than 1Kg. I am currently looking at the Manfrotto 190Pro + 486rc2. Is this setup ok? Are there other model or brands that you guys can recommend?

    Budget is up to 400SGD and as much as possible not that heavy.

    slik 330dx should be enough. cheap 150 and light weight 1.6 kg.But it not a ball head.

    My friend use D70s and SP 90 on this tripod.

    Quite stable already.

    Manfrotto 190Pro + 486rc2 is a good setup, reasonablly priced w/ good working load. But it's quite heavy, just think you should know about it.

    If your budget is $400, you can think of some Carbon Fiber solutions from China (Benro) and Taiwan (Feisol). $400 should be enough to get one of these I think.

    I myself still use a cheapy flimsy Slik Sprint Pro w/ a Benro KB-0 ballhead, total weight is about 1kg, good enough for K10D plus a 16-45 lens, and of course the DFA100 macro too


    Good luck.

    Finally bought a tripod.

    190XPROB
    488rc2

    All for 300sgd. I bought it at FotoGrafix at Chinapoint Mall at Chinatown(exit E from chinatown station). The store owner is very kind and he have lots of manfrotto and gitzo items. He also sells some medium format items.

    Tripod prices seem to have escalated a lot in recent years... I paid less than $220 for a manfrotto 190proB and a 486 ballhead 5 yrs ago.

    Must be because photography is popular nowadays.
