Hey, is Sirui R1204 tripod worth to buy and suitable for travel?
loving my T-1004 =p
I bought my 1st tripod after looking around in b&s. Sirui T-1004 with the G10 head. 6 years warranty from tk photo.
My bf gave me as a present hee. Very worth it compare to second hand benro 500-600ex selling for $160+ on bns that has no more warranty. I wonder who will buy from them leh.
Tried both sirui t1005 and benro a550, sirui still got a better quality and the "feel" is much better.
But to me I don't need to have warranty. Cos I prefer to diy and fix myself
Think fast, aim for the best !
I am looking for a tripod too. But my budget is only $200.
I am deciding between benro and sirui too.
Sounds like sirui is better but benro (a500ex) is higher than sirui (T1004x + G10).
So can anyone enlighten me why choose sirui T1004x over a benro like a500ex?
Anyway,if you need the extra height and don't mind the weight,get the Benro lor...
http://www.benro.cn/EnSite/EnProduct...tId=416&id=137 (1.45kg, max load 6kg)
http://www.siruiusa.com/tripods/t1004x.htm (1.1kg, max load 10kg)
most photographers will go for a light (below 1.5kg for some, for me, tripod must be below 1.3kg) and sturdy tripod.
do you want to carry a heavy tripod + cam + heavy lens walking around shooting everytime?
based on personal experience, getting a heavy and sturdy tripod, the tripod will end up staying at home 90% of the time.
height is the least of the consideration for me since i am ard 1.7... so long as the tripod is above 1.6, it is fine with me. too tall no use to me also. So unless you are 1.75 and above, then height of tripod is one main consideration for you.
Hi, just gonna ask a noob question, so this Sirui T1004 when fully extended (without extending the centre piece) is how high? Will we get backache from keep bending down to look at the viewfinder when the camera is attached on? Pls advise, thanks.
Current: 550D + EFS 18-135mm IS + EF 50mm f1.8 II
