Thread: which tripod should i get??

  1. #1

    Default which tripod should i get??

    Hi guys! i know this is a topic which many people often ask!
    I am hoping someone can help me out a little!

    I am currently using a 40d together with battery grip, 24-105F4L, 70-200F4L and occasionally a 300mm f2.8L. Besides the usual recommendations of Gitzo Tripods and the (very common) Manfrotto 190proxb... is there anything else worth a look at?? =)

    I don't really need THAT much in a tripod! weight is not an issue! I am just looking for something solid and able to take the knocks which dosen't cost me a bomb! looking to upgrade from some "lao pok" tripod

    Thanks

    Well..
    Sturdy tripods are really important, so i guess you should widen your budget a little bit to invest on a good tripod.
    you can try Slik Tripods which relatively cost less than manfrotto & Gitzo

    Try Slik Pro 340DX
    I think it is around $100+
    was recommended by a professional photographer.
    just suggesting.

    good luck

    Tripod selection depends on weight of equipment (including ball head) mounted on tripod and the height of photographer behind the camera

    Weigh the 300 mm lens, body, grip, camera flash and all the camera batteries & flash batteries on a weighing scale to determine the weigh for your consideration of next tripod
