    Bro, logo looks ok if the color is different. The orange is too orangy, looks a bit like red. Like Japanese war flag. I dun like.

    Good point, I'll drop the design entirely... I'll leave the Vinyl on mine until it falls off...

    True hor... But anyway, luckily I didn't get it - just got the B + W clear for my 62mm... I was at TK, were you there too? Also, just discovered something called a step-up adaptor ring... so now I'll just get all my round filters at 77mm and get the cheapo adapter for all the stupid lens ring sizes... Now I only need ONE good CPL and ONE good ND110 at 77mm... The rest will be Hitech 100mms...

    OK, here is my confession:

    I got

    Sirui T-1004x
    Manfrotto 494rc2
    Hitech ND0.9

    Funny thing is I tested both the CF T-1204X and the Aluminium T-1004X. The 1204x is hella light. So light it is scary but it is very stiff. One thing though, when I test the tripod with the 2-finger tap test, it seems the 1004x is better at dampling the taps better than the CF one. I am very perplexed. But at less than half the price, I went ahead and got the T-1004x.

    And for the Manfrotto, ya kind of stuck with that one. it is the only one small enough. But tested my heaviest setup and it seems to hold without problems. The only gripe is that the friction knob and main lever are 180 deg from each other. Making it impossible to fold the tripod legs 100%. So I have one leg not completely closed... Still works though.

    Overall very happy with my purchases.

    Now I have a light cheap setup for travel. And when I use the tripod as a weapon, it will hurt the target. If I use the CF version, it will not even hurt a fly...

    wah... good purchases...!
    But for your regular shoots (in Singapore), I guess the Sirui will stay at home?
    How much was the 494rc2 anyway?

    T1004X looks nice and compact for travel...
    hmmm... better not buy another tripod.. hahaha Will stick to my trusty (and big) CF one for my training trip.

    Cheap. $90 only. But 4kg max.

    Thing is about manfrotto, it seems they are very conservative with their max weight listing. Unlike some other brands...

    Mr Wong at Fotografix told me for manfrotto when they say 4kg, you can really put 4kg on it without fear. Well my heaviest set up is less than 2kg.

    My current one is the 488rc2. It comes with pan lock. But it is a monster, very heavy at 700 grams.

    Not bad. His pricing is the same if you get e-quote from Cathay. So Fotografix quote is one quote one kill. No games. Ya, you are right about Mr Wong opening at 3pm. I went there at 2:30pm and I had to wait around for 30mins.
