    seriously, WHY do you ask such a vague question?

    tell us your approximate budget and your requirements. do you want a light tripod, or a heavy one? what matters? weight? stability? pan head? ball head? arca-swiss?
    i guess my qns was too open.. many of u really think out of the box...

    my budget is ard $120 -$150, looking for ballhead, of cos it has to be stable when i use it for D90..

    go for slik or benro, they should have something to match your needs and price range

    or one of those random brands which have received good reviews. look in the forums and you'll spot them sooner or later.

    you mean the Manfrotto 190XProB? thats kinda out of his budget.. especially with the 488RC2 head.

    even my 190X with the 488RC0 second hand cost me $290
    It is such a quiet thing to fall,
    But far more terrible is to admit it

    A budget of $120 IMHO cannot get a decent tripod with head...Probably can only buy those cheap plastic ones...

    Hahahha. I'm just trying to be an ass....
    ... but it's quite portable wat. I can hook it up to the back of my car and drive on the highway all the way from here to KL, take photo of KLCC, then tow it back to Singapore. Extermely portable! If I don't feel like driving, it can be hooked on the back of the KTM train to KL too...

    Seriously, to the TS (and anyone who starts this kind of thread), next time I hope you give us something to work with when you ask for advice.
    At least if you said:
    I'm looking for a tripod < $150 which can support my D90 + kit lens + SB600 (about __kg), and is comfortable for my height (1.xx m)
    Would prefer it to have a ball-head with quick-release plate if possible.
    Any brands and models to recommend?

    ahhh, in this case members can start giving you reasonable suggestions to match your requirements
    Exploring! :)

    You sure you want to put your S$1500 camera + S$X lens on a shitty tripod?

    Don't be stingy on your tripod. It's what supports your expensive camera. Think of it that way.

    Is your camera mounted on the tripod while you're driving from Singapore to KL?

    Hi TS, borrow your thread maintain clubsnap space
    I'm using D90 too.
    At the moment budget not more than 300 for a customized tripod but this initial budget will not be fixed, it may lower alot more if there's tripods under 200 or even lesser.
    Firstly, I had only my D90 + kit lens (about 1+kg according to manfrotto site weight calculator), and SERIOUSly most importantly few factors:
    - may wan to get a 18-200 or 70-300 but depending.. so an additional tele lens into consideration ( i guess wideangle is lighter)
    - comfortable for my height (1.80 m)
    - prefer to have without extending the center column, the tripod can reach the max comfort height for me.
    - legs with lever for extension, prefer not to use screw type
    - i would prefer a ball head
    - quick-release hot shoe
    - portability plus light due to slight back problem
    - no need for super light or carbon fibre cos i know e budget
    which recommendation so i can go and try specifically?

    I'm using a 055xprob with the pan head (same price as the 486rc2). Total less than SGD300 but bought in Malaysia. Very sturdy but a lttle on the heavy side (2.4kg for the tripod alone) But for walkaround, I just use a 479B monopod with a 234RC

    Posted this reply on another subforum...

    http://www.clubsnap.com/forums/showp...5&postcount=20

    Disclaimer: this is just MY thought, in no way am i saying this can replace Manfrotto or Gitzo. I am just saying it is very worth the 88 bucks, and good enough for my use right now...
