Happy Lunar New Year everyone!!!
i am looking for a tripod and read quite a fair bit of threads on tripods.. Realised that Manfrotto & Gitzo are the more common ones.. and there are quite a fair bit of ppl recommending Gitzo for it's light-weight.
I went to the Gitzo webby and tried out the configuration tool and it shortlisted GT542L.
Anyone has any recommendation on this model? Most of the cs-er recommends 1541 gitzo tripod based on the threads which i've read.
Canon 500D (480g)
70-200 f/4.0 (760g)
580EX II (525g)
+ maybe grip
Height is 1.68m.
the reason why i narrowed my selection to gitzo is because of the light weight.. i mean if the tripod is heavy I am less inclined to carry it around be it in singapore or overseas.
