    I don't think there is any tripod more compact than this one. Good for traveling.

    I saw it when I got my Billingham Hadley Pro bag at K13. Really tempted.

    Anyone using ?
    There is. The Sirui T1205x and it has weight rating of 10kgs. and it is even lighter. 800g.

    No it is not cheapo.

    Manfrotto 055CXPRO3 with RC498 will cost you more than $500. Not $150.

    For range around $150, Manfrotto 7302YB might be a good choice. It's reliable and incorporates a quick release ball head.

    You should buy it and find out whether it serves your purpose.

    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?


    hmmm...

    Yes it can but please note that this is one of the cheapo brand so its best to use as towel hanger or light stand and get a new tripod...

    SLIK SDV-20 might be a cheapo model, but SLIK is not a cheapo brand.
    SLIK does manufacture carbon fibre tripods that are very affordable by newbies.

    Actually SLIK pro level tripods are quite good. Just that they are quite expensive... when compared to the price-to-performance ratio of benro and sirui.

    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

    Did I regret ?
    I quickly went home & tested using my former ballhead & I was quite happy with the result :


    Using Bulb.
    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.
