After the upgrade to a heavier cam, I feel that my Slik Sprint Pro isn't up to the task of supporting the cam properly, especially with TC lens attached...
As such, I'll be shopping for a new tripod with abt the same specs as the Sprint Pro. Most important factor should be a short folded length.
Pls recommend a suitable ball head with quick release to complement it as well. Thank you!

This is the specs on the Slik Sprint Pro (thanks to mpenza) :

Maximum Height 64.3" (163.5 cm)
Minimum Height 6.3" (16.2 cm) [when used with short column]
Folded Length 18.9" (48 cm)
Load Capacity 4.4 lb (2 kg)
Leg Sections 4
Leg Lock Type Flip levers
Independent Leg Spread Yes
Center Column Sections 2
Center Column Type Sliding (Reversible, with tension control)
Center Brace No
Spiked Feet Yes
Head Type Ball Head
Head Mount Thread Size 1/4"-20
Weight 1.9 lb (860g)


PS : Pls include the prices too. I heard Gitzo may have some ideal ones but the tag is real pricey...

Thanks for the recommendation, will prefer a longer fully extended length though.
:D Guess I'm hard to please.
