need a light tripod (less then 500g) for my long trip around 8 months.

i dont need a real good one. height wise, around a 1.3m will do

The 'Lollipod' have only a Load Capacity of 0.42kg..... if you are using this with a PnS.... tons of cheapo plastic tripod out there. :thumbsd:

The D90 body (with batt) is already around 700+g and this is NOT inclusive of a lens. The camera setup is already way heavier than the weight capacity of the 0.42kg tripod, so this tripod (stamp + chop) cannot be used.

The recommended tripod weight capacity should be at least twice that of your camera setup's weight. Unless you want to risk your gears falling over when the wind blows, by all means pls do not settle for a cheap tripod to "get by".

Edit: Oh yes, most "cheapo" plastic tripod can only support light weighted setups like say entry level bodies with 18-55 lens only. The 0.42kg will only be suitable for all compact cams and light prosumers.

thanks for the reply, noted, but still will like to find out where to get this tripod as it might come in handy for my friend who are using pns camera.

as for the cheapo plastic... i guess u are right too... i just cant seem to find any tripod or monopod with legs... that is lighter then 500g....

weight is really an issue here as i will be traveling for a long time...
