    Default Benro vs Sirui

    I've been looking around the web for tripods
    can help to enlighten me which one is better, I have my eye on these two model
    or is there any better tripod/ballhead with the same price range?

    Benro A500EX + ballhead BH-1 ($198)
    Sirui T-1004X/T-1005X + G-20 ballhead (195)

    I'm limited to this budget that's why I compare only the two

    my gear is D90 + Tammy 17-50 f2.8 + SB 800

    It is one man's meat is another man's poison. I would say each brand have its own supporters... Perhaps you would like to hands-on these tripods personally and that would definitely help your decision on which one to purchase.

    BTW, $195.00 should be T1004X + G20 Ballhead... a T-2204X + G20 will cost you $370.00

    Yo Bro, not suggesting a new model for u, but with the stated budget, you can only get a Sirui T1004X w G20 ball head.

    errrr so sorry
    typo...

    maybe that's why people are choosing Sirui because of the typo error

    you are correct I'm comparing between

    Reseting my question,

    Which is better with specific model below.

    Benro A500EX + ballhead BH-1 ($198)
    Sirui T-1005X/T-1004X + G-20 ballhead (195)

    agreed, my typo...
    but im leaning towards T1005X, since this is a bit smaller and lighter.

    my mistake, model should be T1004/5X
    and T1004/5X is not capable to be monopod...

    more leg section = less stability.. the t1004x is compact enough for my backpack and messenger bag.. no complaints...

    Benro's A550 is using a clip type lock to extend or retract it's legs,

    compared to

    Sirui's T-1005 which is using a G-lock type to extend or retract it's legs.

    Thus I feel that using a Sirui would be faster to extend and retract.

    I myself using the T-2204. I bought it partly because of the retractable spikes below the legs, which is good for me as in difficult conditions like grass patch area.

    That's good hear, im looking also for fast/easy extend retract action.

    Camera attach and detach should be similar on both ballheads?

    Both ball heads are similar in design..

    hmm no !

    Sirui gives a acra swiss compaitable ball head.. so u can change lots of plates ..

    Benro gives a ball head that is those quick release type.. only 1 plate to play with
