    check out this wide angle and teleconverter thread.

    You probably won't find any landscape/architectural shooter having this equipment as everyone are obsessed with perfection in their photo.

    hahah that's what I thought.

    Most of us are poor photogs, or unwilling to spend too much
    The "premium" brands such as Gitzo are a bit out of our reach

    A learning mind is a mind who always thinks he is a noob and willing to take in more .
    Compare to goat landscape, mine is still not good enough.

    As long as weather is not terrible (ie drizzle with chance of clear skies) we'll go ahead with the outing. Fingers crossed of course.

    Benro is actually really quite good already. The general guideline is the max tripod weight it can support should be about 1 kg more than your total gear weight. Ie. If you gear is 1.5 kg, get a tripod that supports at least 2.5 kg

    Benro tripods, from their shop at Excelsior, are quite good!

    some forget to bring it from home in the morning, so after work they don't have enough time to go home and get their stuff before the outing...
    it's happened quite often before! (not to me, of course...)

    Actually best is to do a 2x estimation. If weight of your heaviest camera setup is 1.5kg. get a support setup with max weight rating of 3kg.

    Up to you as long as you know the risks to your gear (stong wind blow all tumble down) and the risk to your shots (strong wind blow all blur or not very sharp). And of course depends on your definition of cheap? Someone using Gitzo may find my Benro "cheap".
    Vision is more important than gear

    Better not. Use your SZ tripod first and look at the models and setups used by the other shooters. There's so many combinations, so mind-boggling some times. The tripod legs is one thing, the head is another. See a good combi for you to use and fits your budget then get it.
