    Indeed hehee.

    Whatever I buy for a tripod setup, I don't plan to sell it again in the near future.

    Do you guys think I should upgrade the tripod to 190CX3? I mean, is it really a good tripod, or would there be a chance that I can justify something better in the future? Assuming my heaviest setup still will be the 70-200 + 1 series + flash.

    Or would it be better to get a pro head like a Markins Q3 and go for lens collar plates and L plates instead?

    Ah I see. Good to hear positive views on the 190CX3. How's the stability of it? Does it flex when you apply pressure to it?
    i didn't experience flexing. my setup was a Nikon D300 + 70-200 f2.8 or 17-55mm f2.8. was quite stable. took some long exposures under strong winds by the bay..and the pictures turned out ok.

Of course, I don't have a heavy setup. oh, and the GT0541 is cheaper at $560, vs $750 (?) for the GT1541T.
    GT1541T so cheap meh?
    CP quoted me $840 today.

The price is also very reasonable (in fact, cheap considering these are carbon fibre tripods) in my opinion. The CB30 ballhead that comes with it, hold my Olympus E3 and Zuiko 50-200mm lens (total close to 2kg) without any problems.

    And if small, portable, travel-able are your priorities, they are worth a good look.

    Cheers
    Hi ter Hitman,

    May I ask how much was the Feisol tripod and where did you get it ? Here in SG ?

    Thanks !

    I got the quote from J316, but I can't remember the exact price. It's definitely high 700 (760-790). CP quoted me $800+ also.

    Was out of stock last few weeks and one of my customer got it from there @ $850.

    I also don't dare to quote as distributor also don't have the stocks.

    I bought my G1541 (non traveller) from JO3:16 for $770 in Sept last year. I think the traveller version is about $30-$50 more. Plus some price increase.....

    Hi ianwurn,

    I ordered the Feisol tripod through their website, payment through paypal. Simple and easy.

    www.feisol.com
    Pictures always should have a special story behind it or a special meaning to the photographer.
