    Having said that, may i know how much does it weigh for your setup (055CX3).
    My heaviest setup should be my 1D3 + 24-70 + speedlite, around 2.5kg. But then I usually hang my camera bag on the tripod so that adds another 2-3kg to the total weight
    Fujifilm X-Pro2 Graphite, X-Pro1
    XF 14/2.8, 18/2, 23/2, 35/1.4, 56/1.2, 60/2.4, 55-200/3.5-4.8

    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.

    Camera Eqpt
    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.

    Strongly recommend CT1541 if budget is not a concern

    Dot forget the tripod head, they are equally important.
