Hi all, for the past few month I was hunting for my first tripod, considered manfrotto, silk, benro and fancier but wasn't attracted to any because of either price or weight.
Until 2 weeks ago, came across a tripod thread post #27. It was a link to gmarket, something which I used to purchase cheap clothing from.
It was a brand called Horusbennu. Something which I haven't heard of, did some searching but there wasn't much information available but the listing totally attracted me. Carbon Fiber, Monopod function, Neon red ball head, Light weight. So I took the plunge and ordered it. Had quite a bit of problem with the ordering because of the language and they only support IE, so be warned, you need to use IE if you want to order smoothly *Mac user are out of luck*. Something weird is that they e-mailed me asking for ID or passport scan to verify the address, nevertheless, I sent a soft copy of my IC and they mailed out my item.
It was sent out by EMS (Express mail service) and reach me quite fast. Did the order on 29th apr, received 5th May.
