    Thanks guys for sharing. Not much talk about Vanguard Alta Tripod. This is about the same price as Benro. Between the 2 any difference?

    I also hope someone can share between the pan/tilt and ball system. which is more subjected to wear and tear?

    I am using Velbon Ultra because of the twist lock leg system and cheaper compare to other tripod with this kind of feature.

    Painful memories as I lost my Manfrotto 055CXpr03 with 486RC2 ballhead at Sentosa during an outing couple months back! A very good and versatile tripod which had travelled with me to few countries and many shoots! Abit Ex but worth the money. Haiz... Anyway, a friend of my introduced Sirui to me and the N series looks very good which can even take heavier loads than a Manfrotto! Will be going down to TK to get either the N-2205 + K20x next week if anyone wanna go, do pm me.

    For some one leg stance will be good enough.

    I am using the Sirui T-025.
    Reason I chose this? Very simple - my priority is small and light for taking on trips, and this tripod fits the bill perfectly.
    600g and folded small enough to put in my bag or sticking out my cargo pants pocket, what more can you ask for?
