I'll go to CP and see what they have.:think:
First of all, what are you gonna load on it? How high do you need it to reach? And how small you want it packed down....

All these will help you identify which one you are looking for.

Well I'm using a Dynax 5D with flash and a Tokina 28-70mm. The weight should be 1.5kg. I think 1.4-1.5m should be OK. It shouldn't be too heavy under 1kg.

You're just waiting for ppl to spoon feed you here... go do your own research. The prices are all around in the forum, just do a simple search lah...

And if you are just using the monopod to stabilise single plane shots, why do you need a ball head to add extra weight to your monopod?? A simpler tilt head would suffice...

Firstly I did do a search and they all seem to be above SGD100. I'm actual looking for the PH-18 which seems to be going for SGD 85.

Yes I'm using it in a single plane stabilzation but nobody holds a monopod vertically but tilted for satbilation.
