Anyway, TS, if it's of any help, I bought a Sirui R2404 with G20 BH recently. Pretty sturdy and legs not very thin. Height is quite decent, though I must say it's quite heavy. Can head down to TK Foto and look for Uncle Philip. He's the tall guy..
Thanks everyone for the recommendations , well although I'm 13, i do save up myself to buy my camera gear... (Except for the actual camera), so I guess I've been thinking about buying a decent tripod since 11 or something
wa good good start young... can't imagine myself saving up when I was 13 to buy something 100+, me pocket money just a bit more to cover my recess and maybe lunch... mmm power mixed veg rice for $1.20 then!
checkout link to 'scapes' and buy sirui tripod to get the same quality of images!
haha just joking la you need much more than that ;p
agree with recommendations, just note that R2004 is quite heavy at 1.7kg, try it out at TK Foto see if you can imaging yourself lugging it around. It you feel lazy to bring out tripod you will not bring it out! T1004X is much more compact when folded, but max height is much less, good for overseas travelling
Or you can consider getting the R1004 (some would recommend upgrading the head to G20). Good for the price! With my limited experience, think S'pore don't have big gusts of winds so still sturdy enough here heh...
Checkout TK Foto's websites to see the specifications of the different Sirui tripods (don't think I can link to their website from here, though you see link from this page: http://www.clubsnap.com/forums/tk-foto-forum/1049611-tk-foto.html)
