Comparable tripod to Velbon FHD 52Q?
Feb 14, 2009

Hi all,

I was at London Drugs the other day and saw the Velbon FHD 52Q. Immediately I liked the included ball pan head, and that it weighed at around 500g, and max load at 2.5kg. But the price tag on it was $300... Just wondering if anyone know of a comparable tripod that is a ball head and weighs this little... and most importantly cheaper?

I have a Fujifilm S5Pro, SB-600, Sigma 18-200, Tamron 90mm, and a Nikkor 50mm. It looked like the Velbon with a max load weight of 2.5kg can handle my equipment?
