Hi,

Looking around for a lightweight tripod for Macro Shooting. Saw a few with the centre column that is able to move along the horizontal axis. One of them is the C-197 n6 from Benro. I would not mind a brandless china tripod but most important consideration would be the weight and price. Could anyone please give some professional advice?

I'll recommend Manfrotto 190CXPRO3. Around 400.

if my budget is below 300, does it mean that i could dream of such a tripod? All seems so expensive for me.

Not all is lost. I have a brand new unused Feisol CT3442 I bought last for $5++. I think I paid $575 for it at that time. Now its much cheaper. It comes with the horizontal attachment. Just PM if you are interested.
