    See? Even he agrees (Yes, both fotomad and I are talking about the same tripods).

    Travel tripod is more compact (5 sections so it's shorter when kept), whereas Y-560 is only 3 sections and it's 62cm long when kept.

    More sections > More compact > Less stable
    Less sections > Less compact > More stable
    or read more about them here: http://www.clubsnap.com/forums/showthread.php?t=384016

    Yong Nuo Tripods
    3 section or 5 section.

    I bought the 5section one as a gift for someone and it was super stable when I used it with my lenses-- meaning up to 85mm. There was probably no ballhead creep. It folds to a very very small size, so it's able to be packed into a small backpack, for example.

    The 5section one is already so stable-- what more the 3 section one? Thicker last section legs, so it'll be heavier.

    If size / weight is the premium factor, go for the 5 section. If stability is what you're looking for and don't mind the size/weight, go for the 3 section one. Price diff is S$30+ only.

    I also bought the Yong Nuo Tripod (3 Section) a few weeks ago from JL Photo....
    but it was before the price increment

    I'm pretty happy with my purchase

    With your budget range, this could be the tripod you are looking for

    Travel - 5 section
    Stability - 3 section

    See which one you do / want more often, and pick that one.

    I will not divulge the price cos he did me a server as I said it was a gift. His name's Jason, btw.

    is Yong Nuo Tripods 5 section suitable for Canon 40D(+17-85/50mm f1.4 + 430EX)? plan to use 70-200 f4 too in near future.
    needing it mainly for live-view and self-participating family shots.

    actually i was thinking of 5 sections too but its abit pricy
    179.
    with the additional ballhead is like 69 adds up to 200+ for a tripod not sure if its stable for a 5 section camera

    it's very very stable as I just got one 5 section from JL just 2 weeks ago.. why not you contact them and arrange for a viewing.. guess you will know which tripod will be more suitable for you..

    hi bro.. i just got one from them.. its very stable and if you are going to hold your future 70-400 and doing some video.. i suggest to opt for KS0 3way pan ballhead.. according to him, it can hold up to 6 kg and is very good if you are using a heavier lens.. =) than ballhead also allow you to do panning (with grid indicator) when you are doing video..

    Is there such a thing as a 3-way panning ballhead? Doesn't make sense.

    Its moving along 3 different axis, hence the name 3 way pan head. Some call it pan/tilt head.
