    Default Re: which tripod to get?

    Oic, what camera are u using? Is it because it is too heavy?
    Someone told me that there is a limit to how heavy the BH
    can withstand, so could it be a problem?

    Markins price very steep... hmm...

    Have both benro 350Ex and 055CX with 3 manfrotto Heads.
    Good to start with something like Benro 350 Ex light short and easy to carry around. Fold to a compact 43cm. Always with me on casual shoots and on all my travels. My DSLR leaves the house together with this tripod. 055CX folded is too long at 62cm and, with 488 BH, heavy; only used when shooting macro and on long tele.

    No use buying the best tripod if you're reluctant to take it out of the house.

    Using 50D with canon 100mm F2.8 macro lens.
    no no ... for normally shot normally BH is OK.
    But once you shot macro is totally different.
    cos a little shift on the lens your subject will not in the center or etc.
    So you have to keep on adjust.... and that really lor...

    for normally night shot or etc... a little you cant tell the different but macro is is different...:
