    The tripods I own/owned:

    Vanguard 263AT (sold off): Limited lifetime warranty if purchased in Singapore. I prefer the slightly more matt finishing compared to manfrotto 190xprob. When extending/retracting the legs, it feel smoother. Price slightly cheaper than manfrotto. Brand name not many users at the moment i think. Clip lock is easy to operate and matches manfrotto's quality.

    Sirui 1004X (sold off): Light and suitable for travel. Price matches the quality/finishing. Brand name. Growing demand it seems. Dislike the twist lock which takes abit more time.

    Benro 500EX: Light and suitable for travel. Price matches the quality/finishing. Brand name. Seems quite popular here. Clip lock though easy to operate, can be improved in terms of quality. This is my heavy duty tripod that goes into the mud/sand and overseas or pretty much in my boot most of the time.

    Fancier 6662: (given to my cousin): Light but feels wobbly with heavier bodies/lens. Price? Very affordable. Good to buy if you do not plan to use tripod much.

    i find monopods more useful for what i do. For tripod though, i have the Slik U212 but switch between two heads for photo and video.
    You wont see me much less remember me but i am the guy who makes you look good.
