    I must say, that last tour we did together was really fun.

    I really enjoyed travelling with you and your wife.

    BTW:- I might consider upgrading to this Velbon model.

    It weighs 1 kilo can is meant to carry 2 kilos of stuff -> I was overloading the p-max which was designed to carry 1.5 kilos.

    Velbon Sherpa 750R
    Benro A550EX..perhaps with KB0A or KB-1 ballhead

    Anyone own these sherpas before?

    good + easy to carry = not cheap

    It's not bad. I was evaluating this and the Slik 400DX... It has a decent height and can take a decent amount of weight... But decided to go with the 400DX as it can open it's legs wide open such that the tripod can be set up really low... Which is a pretty nifty feature... At least for me...

    In any case, I was at CP Marina Square and there were a couple of Slik tripods on promotion. My apologies for not noting down the model number, but I suppose it's worth a trip down to either CP to have a look.

    good for travel, easily slot into my 7milliondollarhome
    no good when there's strong winds, yesterday night was at the barrage. cannot take the strong winds. stability i feel is slightly better than slik sprint pro
    also note that the legs are twist release

    the solid/sturdiness is the tradeoff for the lightweight/portability i suppose. be careful during night shooting, strong winds can come from nowhere.

    i dun think im experience enough to do a review on tripods
    the only other tripod i've used is the slik sprint pro
    because i go on backpacking trips i always go for the portable ones

    Folded length: 36cm and Maximum working height: 152.5cm
    at the time when i was searching around,
    cannot find any other tripod that can be so short when retracted and reach an aceptable working height (for me)

    what i dont like is the twist release legs.. troublesome when setting up/keeping :P

    anyway its best u guys go down to the shops and compare the different models
    different people different needs ma

    heehee i exaggerated a bit
    the winds were strong that night, but nt to the point of tripod flipping over
    when i zoom in 10X in the liveview can see obvious vibration

    Hi Shunzi

    What is the heaviest lens you mounted on it?

    I was using the GM series. My issue with it is that it can hardly withstand my D90 + 500g lens on potrait mode.

    Guys, I think the TS wants some suggestions on how to carry the tripod and not what tripod to buy.

    You might want to share what your tripod model is (if i guess this one correctly)

    Some easy and cheap way to carry tripod is maybe just to DIY a strap. Can go to those shops that sells military clips and loops and straps and DIY it using those.

    I assume good means sturdy and light? The good ones are usually the expensive Gitzo or Manfro carbon fibres. Of course there are cheaper alternatives but you need compromise with the weight and stability. It's pretty hard to get it balanced. Hope you find your tripod!
