    lotsa bbb soon..
    choose a tripod base on height 1st then look at the material.
    take note, the height mention is without the centre column extended.
    i choose r2204 because i am tall.
    the T series are shorter and lighter as it is Travel series.

    N series are with the monopod leg.

    but do we really need a tripod for the sunrise shots?
    i see a few peeps using Sirui's T1004, R2204 and N2204.. wads the diff between these? read dat they are gd starter tripods... all below $200 rite?


    oops! My bad ya common mistake to assume that all CSers are boys/men. hahaha.

    Sirui is a Chinese manufacturer... as is often the case with products from that country, prices aren't exactly what you would call..... expensive. And yet the quality is quite all right. So it's a good value for money choice.
    The tripod is just the legs and the base. On top of that you need a tripod head.
    The cheapo tripod usually comes with a pan & tilt head that is FIXED onto the tripod or built as part of it. Thus it cannot be removed. The better tripods are sold with legs and head separately, so you have a choice (but then have to pay more... haha).
    You can choose either a ballhead or a pan&tilt head. If you ask the folk here, I think 100% would vote for the ballhead for still photography.
    Exploring! :)

    you'll learn a lot by joining in...!


    monopod feature is nice to have, but if you ask me (and some here won't agree with me ), the height requirements for monopod and tripod are slightly different.
    Tripod should not be so tall that you can't see the top LCD of your camera. That is, you probably need to stoop down a little to get your eye level with the viewfinder.
    Monopod should be tall enough that the viewfinder is level with your eyes when you're standing straight. This is a comfortable posture.

    So it's hard to satisfy the different height requirements in 1 device.
    Exploring! :)

    I heard that it's cheaper in Singapore, but can't really confirm.
    But seriously, how much cheaper do you expect it to go?

    hi bitez, every day is a running day but not every day is a outing day haha

    i'm 1.8m,
    http://www.zssirui.com/en/products.html
    height w/o , w extended column (in mm)
    R2204 - 1350, 1610 + ball head (G-20) will be 98 + camera body (d90) 103 = 1.51m, 1.81m
    T2204 - 1230, 1480
    N2204 - 1390, 1650

    i am showing are the 4 section tripod. dun go to 5 section kind. as it will be usually too thin a leg on the last section.
    the 2 denote Carbon fiber.

    the 1 digit 2 are the higher one.

    hope the above helps.

    on the monopod, unless u are taking some fast moving sport etc, u dun need them. as there will not be enuff space to open the tripod leg and u need to move ard alot. this will save time and faster too in deploying.
