Base on comments and recommendation from CS members, I have short list 2 tripods for Sony F828.

Tripod Maximum load capacity : 5.00 kgs
Ball Head Maximum load capacity : 5.90 kgs
Maximum Height with extended center column & Ball Head : 155 cm

there is a special catch on each of the legs...when in normal position, it will hold the leg to prevent over extending. And when the catch is in the 'up' position, it allows the leg to be spread further. Its centre column can be removed also to reach desired low height.

I vote for Manfrotto 190Pro. Good and stable. You can't go wrong with it. :thumbsup:

Weight isn't really an issue. You'll get used to it over time. Personally, I'd rather get a good sturdy tripod and not having to worry about strong gusts of wind blowing my setup over all the time.

Just my personal 2 cts.

I would certainly prefer if the tripod comes with a shoulder strap for easy carry around.

Well, can get the Optech tripod strap from CP. $30. Well padded and very comfortable. :thumbsup:

So where does the tripod strap attach itself to on the tripod?

You'll still need a head for the Silk. The one that comes with it is rubbish.
