    anyone has any recommendations for a light tripod? I don't want to carry my manfrotto up a mountain already so heavy...

    CF tripods seem to meet my weight requirements of < 1.4 kg

    calculate what's the heaviest setup load you need to put on a tripod when you go overseas. if you're not a nature geek, you probably aren't going to bring big long lenses, so your heaviest setup might just be very light and you can just go for one that comes with the tripod head attached. that might help you widen your option to some cheaper CF tripods.

    yes, very hot.

    hiking is usually overnight, so that can see sunrise in morning. but mountain top is quite chilly in night and early morning.

    please lor, i was going around with 055ProB with 488RC0
