Mga pafs, urgent lang. My gear is Nikon D90 w/ Tamron 28-75mm. Ano ma recommend niyo na tripod? Benro, Manfrotto or Gitzo. Price range nasa P3,000.00 to P4,000.00. Yung matibay tibay na 'di naman masyado mabigat and kasama na ba yung ball head 'dun? And pati pala kung sasamahan ng battery grip.

A300ex  or A500EX ang mga sikat dito sa ganyang price range.

ok na yung a300, kaso sa price magpapang abot na sila. kaya mas maganda sulitin at mag a500 na. thats plus 2 kgs max load.

suggest ko rin benro a500-ex. ok na ok. mura pa. sa 500 pesos difference sa price, medyo malayo rin height defferences nila so mas sulit a500-ex kesa a300-ex. sa apaerture trading, pwede mo makita pareho before buying.

I am currently using a Manfrotto 190 (no succeeding letters after the number...) Its all aluminum with a couple magnesium parts. Its locks for the legs are the turning knob type. The head i really forgot the model of the head. MY tripod is quite good but the thing is i find it quite heavy (especially with my latest trip and i was lugging this around ang bigat sobra... Now i've made up my mind to upgrade to a lighter tripo and I've been browsing the marketplace and f/s section and I see the brands benro, gitzo, giottos etc etc... which among these brands is the best and bang for buck? thanks in advance!

The new Benro Travel series transfunctional tripod and ball head kits look very promising. You can detach one leg, attach the ball head, and viola, instant monopod.  I think I'm gonna get one of these.

Gitzo has the best and one of the lightest carbon fiber tripods in the market that most pro uses.  Can't go wrong with Gitzo.

sir mike, we have the same manfrotto heavy tripod. although it is very sturdy, it isn't recommended when going on a travel out of the country. that is why i bought a 190cxpro3. i would have bought the 190cxpro4 however i find the last leg a bit flimsy.

here is where i based my decision http://manfrottoschoolofxcellence.com/2008/07/11/review-of-the-manfrotto-190cxpro4-tripod-2/

so far, the performance of the tripod is better than expected  ;)
