Please help me choose tripod for d800
7 months ago

Hi All,

I am looking for a new tripod. I am currently using manfrotto 190xprob with 322RC2 joystick ball head. I like this combo except for the weight.

requirements:

  1. As light as it can be (back problem)
  2. Can support up to d800 + 70-200 f2.8 (mostly on 16-35 or 14-24)
  3. about 130cm high w/o extension (I am 170cm tall)
  4. Budget about US$400 (including ball head).

Any recommendation? I am looking at Sirui T-1205X ($280), N-1004 4 section ($155) and T-2205X ($307) but not sure how sturdy are these compare to the manfrotto 190xprob. For ball head, I am looking at sirui K-20X or K-30X. I don't know much about support system, am I missing anything else for my need, like quick release plate and whatnot?

Your help will be much appreciated.
