For range around $150, Manfrotto 7302YB might be a good choice. It's reliable and incorporates a quick release ball head.
previously a few years back,
i got a SLIK SDV-20 tripod.
after i purchased my EOS 550D DSLR, i was given a DIGIPOD SL1400 tripod.
it feels lighter than my SLIK SDV-20 tripod.
not sure whether it can support my dslr?
Dear all, i am also looking for a tripod. Any recommendtion of shop that i can visit? I need one that holds my canon 40D.... Something reasonable. Those pros one is really beyond my budget. I am looking within the range of $200+.
I'm recently bought fancier WF591BH(i think a new model) to replace my steinzeiser free gift tripod, it can hold my 50D + grip + 2 battery + 24-70mm that weight about 2.5KG upsidedown without any problem, UP S$119 at comex, the body feels like those of benro or vanguard of the same spec, just my 2 cents
I asked quite a number of shops & at last trust 1 of the lao jiao uncle. He told me there shouldn't be any problem.
Did I regret ?
I quickly went home & tested using my former ballhead & I was quite happy with the result :
D700 with 24-120 F4 VR
Still need more field test maybe with my 70-300.
The max height of this tripod ( 1.54m w/o centre column extend ) is also 1 of the reason I choose this over sirus as I am tall.
The made of this tripod ( aluminum ) is smooth & the texture is nice.
When fully fold, it measured only 36cm which is very portable to carry around with it's provided bag or can even put inside my camera bag.
Just bought my Sirui T1004 + G20 last weekend, love it, its was solid and sturdy and the price is reasonable.
Current: 550D + EFS 18-135mm IS + EF 50mm f1.8 II
