Can share why you choose the brand? price, quality, brand name, etc...
The tripods I own/owned:
Vanguard 263AT (sold off): Limited lifetime warranty if purchased in Singapore. I prefer the slightly more matt finishing compared to manfrotto 190xprob. When extending/retracting the legs, it feel smoother. Price slightly cheaper than manfrotto. Brand name not many users at the moment i think. Clip lock is easy to operate and matches manfrotto's quality.
Sirui 1004X (sold off): Light and suitable for travel. Price matches the quality/finishing. Brand name. Growing demand it seems. Dislike the twist lock which takes abit more time.
Benro 500EX: Light and suitable for travel. Price matches the quality/finishing. Brand name. Seems quite popular here. Clip lock though easy to operate, can be improved in terms of quality. This is my heavy duty tripod that goes into the mud/sand and overseas or pretty much in my boot most of the time.
Fancier 6662: (given to my cousin): Light but feels wobbly with heavier bodies/lens. Price? Very affordable. Good to buy if you do not plan to use tripod much.
