    I wont say its no use ba. If in future you wanna upgrade the tripod but not the ball head, you can still keep the G20 haha. For me the N2204 max load is 15 kg i think. I simply got that with the G20 so that i wont have to worry bout upgrading for a while haha.

    For the 2nd part im not aware of it.

    I've not yet had to go so low with my current set-up. If I need to, I know what I'll be doing

    I would advise a bit of scepticism with regards to rated load capability of the various support equipment. At the moment none of them follow any international standard with regards to measuring this load capacity.

    That being said, logically speaking if the center of gravity of your camera+ lens is DIRECTLY above the stem of the ballhead, that creates the least amount of stress on the ballhead. I guesstimate even 40 or 50kg on it will be fine. Once you start going into weird angles (eg propping the camera into portrait orientation, etc), then you create stress on the ballhead, and have a chance for the ballhead to slip/creep.

    Urm...just remember to retract all the 3 legs when you go low angle or else you'll be kinda looking stoopid... "you" refering to every one and no one, okayz?

    You should recommend that route to Skylover and see how he takes it... I think if you don't plan to sell your poddie in the future, should be okay to saw it.

    I think Benro didn't provide short column...

    ok check liao G10 max load is 18kg while G20 max load is 20kg. also not much diff.

    min. have to get G10 thou it is redundant since the tripod can only tahan 10kg

    resisting the temptation to saw it

    Unless I sell it to someone who's 1.95m tall, chances are the center column won't be extended

    Actually, Sirui should just provide short one... the sell the long one separate for those who don't really know how to use poddie... or want extra height out of it...

    Actually, mine hor, if you fully extend with long column comes up to about 1650 without ballhead...

    See? It pays to do a bit of homework... But saying is saying, you better go test it out yourself with your cam+heaviest lens and flash...just so it won't creep.... what's on paper dunno can be guaranteed or not...

    Personally i believe all the max load stated are actually much less than what it can actually take. Don't worry too much about it. Either combination will be able to take our D90 with no prob at all
