Need tripod recommendations : LUSENET : Photography Singapore : One Thread

Hi, I am a amateur photographer, and I am currently saving up to buy a tripod. Would like some suggestions on what brand and model of tripod I should get.

My needs are: My height is 1.7m I do low angle, macro, landscape and sports photos. My budget is S$200 inclusive of the head.

Anyone who has suggestions please do not hesitate to email me! Thanks in advance!

Hi Mel,

If you are using a F80, i recommend the following setup:

Manfrotto 190pro (S$ 150-silver or $160-Black) China made Ball head with Quick Release ( S$ 50) - hold up to 3kg

Total : $200 or $210 (black 190pro)

You can get them at Cathay Photo, Peninsula plaza, Singapore
