can consider the Slik Pro 340DX, using it, durable and on the border of the lightweight region, of course it can't compare to carbon fibre tripods.

i think most of the tripod will suit your bill of taking landscapes like Helix, there are no huge winds at that area unless you are shooting at coastal region, maybe you can consider taking a few shots more, easier for QC.

You can try going down TK Foto at Funan, they have a decent selection of tripods there for you to try. $300 should be more than enough to get a good aluminium tripod + ballhead.

manfrotto and velbon branded mah :bsmilie:

with your budget, a decent manfrotto + ballhead is within range.

i suggest that u just go down to TK and play with their display sets. then based on those there, select something that folds up nicely and is not too heavy for u.

its impossible for pple to tell u which model is good. needs differs.

Sirui is good. i am using coming up to 1 year already (using T1204).

been using it in singapore (pretty often), my trip to HK (survived the heavy wind at The Peak), and melbourne (Strong Winds at Great Ocean Road).

never gave me any problems at all.

not to mention its very light!

most important factor - height :bsmilie: no point getting something small and light but not high enough.

just hands on with the tripod and make sure u're comfortable with the handling, and select a ballhead to go with it.

unless u have super heavy equipment, or u need something really specific, most tripods are ok for beginners.

u can also swing by ben photo at peninsula shopping center and look at the benro tripods. they have a thread in mass-sale as well:

remember a few important points when buying:

1. tripod height is suitable for your needs

2. portability
a) weight - you won't feel like lugging a heavy tripod out, trust me
b) folded length - i just don't like long folded tripods they just get in the way

3. budget - if you got a little more money to spare just get carbon fibre. but if you are on a tight budget just get aluminium then


(if you are worried about strong wind, maybe you can just hang your camera bag below :bsmilie:)

Agree with Detritus that height is important, my old tripod was abit short and i always have to bend my back to look through the viewfinder...i bought sirui carbon fibre R1204 tripod+ G20 ball head at TK 2weeks ago, price is within your range. check out their facebook advert as mentioned by edutilos- for the price and go pay a visit someday. I tried every tripod there at least 2 times b4 finally picked one;p
