    madmartin, thanks for helping me to clarify. Yeah, its csi4. sorry about the bobo.

    nicorn - you think too much le. If you go down to the shop, the lady will tell you that there is one that is currently on sales now........ and i only got 1 canon. Where got a Nikon.... btw, it was kind of a nice 'detective' thing you did. it takes effort and i appreciate that. However, it may not be what you thought it was. Hope this clarifies

    I got the manfrotto 680B, very very good and stable monopod... but not that light and quite large actually... of course my manfrotto don't come with a ballhead, but I have a K-20X with my sirui and so the ballhead was used on my monopod too.

    I still think that it would be better if you get a good monopod (don't use those with build in ballhead). Head down to TK and CP and have a feel of the monopod there, some of them are pretty good and sturdy. Happy hunting.
    I am not a photographer, just someone who happened to have a couple of cameras.

    Manfrotto 680 cost around $80 only pre-owned on BnS.

    Ball head need to buy separately though.

    Btw... what is your budget? Maybe you should get a second hand one from BnS. My manfrotto was bought second hand from a bro in Clubsnap, like it alot. And since you already have a tripod, I would imagine that the tripod head can be detached from the tripod, so can fit on the monopod too.

    I got a hercules ballhead from sgcamerastore (S$45) once, used it briefly for some of the zoo shots and it work pretty well... the hercules ballhead is quite sturdy and if you do not have extremely heavy equipment, it should work well... Can consider that.
