    No need la. around a 5min walk only, if you take a slow leisurely pace.

    cos my budget is not very big... i would go look for a decent $70 tripod.. but cos i nv use this SZ tripod on my dslr b4, im afraid it might topple .. the legs are so thin...

    watch your gear very closely!

    We can talk more about tripods and filters, etc tonight. Feel free to ask any of the seniors.
    But stay away from the one with the Nikon D700/16-35VR/SB900/135DC/Gitzo/Markins.... His equipment is very 'poisonous'

    Yup, 6pm or so... I like to go recce first to look-see what are the best spots, angles, vantage points to shoot. Also to shoot Zero as he is illegal parking would be cool...
    Anyway, contact me if you get there earlier. I'll probably be at Coffeebean or Starbucks by 5pm to do some work.

    don't be in such a rush to buy a tripod just to join an outing. A rushed purchase is usually a bad purchase.

    Unfortunately (for you), tonight's outing is really too full already.
    What I suggest is to join a smaller outing next time, and ask some questions about what sort of tripod to get. Look at what other people use. Also in the meantime do some research on various brands/models and their prices.
    You need not get the most expensive model, but neither should you grab the cheapest one you can find.

    Can I pass as a traveling photographer who happens to walk pass and is interested in going in and take some photos etc? Maybe as well as friendly chat with some of the shooters?

    ... wah... how come so many people wanna just drop by?
    aiyah... I regret my actions now...

    I think it's not fair to the newbies if we have more and more people just dropping by, then the seniors all busy chit chatting and nobody helping the newbies...

    Just a suggestion. This is what i notice in another outing. You can do a group brief for the common things.... like set to aperture mode....what aperture to use....etc.... then you will have some time to take some photos also.
