Tripod Recommendations: 2.4kg Load
I'm thinking of getting a tripod that would be able to take a load of 2.3-2.5kg. Would anyone be able to recommend a tripod that would do the job? Pls kindly do include the estimated market price for ur recommended tripod, if it was new/used. I'm limited by budget, so as long as the tripod can take the load & does a job job at keeping steady, I'm more than happy. Oh yah, let me know if the tripod comes with a quick release baseplate.
And if possible, do point me towards a local shop/dealer that stocks the recommended tripod. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks.
*PS: If anyone wishes to sell their tripod, do let me know too. Cheerios!

Manfrotto 190. About $150. Cathayphoto.
Tripods usually don't come with any QR plates. You have to get a head with QR plate separately.

and also, do take the weight of the head into consideration also.
