That's my next step. The CT version, without the ballhead was pricier than with the ballhead. Next I itend to sell off the ballhead and buy a GH-300T.

I need another help. The QR plate of the ballhead needs to be tighten by a coin/allen key. And the plate is not Arca swiss compatible. Now my question is, can I just replace the screw? or Do I need to change the whole QR plate and clamp to get a D-ring screw? Sorry, if it's obvious, but I have very limited knowledge when comes to tripod
The Head is Vanguard SBH-100

I went ahead, and bought the alta pro 284cb with sbh-100 ballhead for $299, bit overbudget, but I got pretty good reviews. I went ahead and had a look in a rental shop. I think it will serve my purpose and then some. Thank you for educating me.

3kg I can carry, but stability for long exposure is my concern, also the time to set up is important as well. Though my k5iis is pretty light, and so are pentax wide angles. but for a 3-4 minute exposure, i want a crisp shot. Also I want to give light painting a try. Initially, I was thinking of that 363ct and a gh-100 pistol grip, but the downside is the center column is not MAAC supported, since the ballhead has only 8 degree upward movement, can't use it for astro. I am also considering alta pro 263AGH with gh-100 since abeo pro with gh-300 is way out of my budget.

The problem is, if I'm buying one tripod, I may not be able to buy another one at least for couple of years. So, trying to cover almost all the grounds.
Here in India, except manfrotto almost all the camera gears are costly. the 263agh is available for $250 in BH but here it's costing around $500. My colleague is coming back on 14th July, which one I buy has to reach her by then.

okay, quick question. T-025x or Vanguard abeo plus 363ct? The later one is on $220 off at adorama for $209, but without head. Height is not my requirement, as I am a short guy.
I am looking for one within $250, and preferably CF.

Thanks mate. SInce you are using t-025x, can I use it, with 16-85 or rokinon 8mm with K5IIS for long exposure in high wind? like in mountain or in sea beach?

Oh, No, The primary reason for buying the tripod is long exposure. Macro and other types of photography comes later. I had sirui T-025x in my mind after reading the review in PF, but with the reviews in other forums and in BH, I had second thoughts. I heard the center column is not entirely removable, no rotation of center column, no spiked feet and with bags the feet bends.
I recently rented a basic vanguard CF tripod, with very thin legs, but it stayed rock steady in high winds with my K5IIS and 16-85 for a long exposure with a bag hanging at the base.
I came across Vanguard VEO 265CB which seems cool but lacked the hook. Any suggestion?

Thanks. This will be my first tripod. My Current body is K5IIS and the heaviest lens I have is 16-85. I will buy a 100mm in couple of months and perhaps a bigma, and a wide and a wide angle. MY primary use will be for landscape. I would expect strong wind, but I will be hanging my bag to support and some macro at this point.

I know this is an old thread, still I wanted to get some info. It would be my first tripod and with the cost benefit comparison, I came upon this one, 2540C with LX-3T ballhead

How was it?

I was researching about HorusBennu A8 with Lx-3T ball head.There are some praises in DPReview. A few video review is also available. It's not that cheap like those q666 series, it's more like Sirui T-025x price, But with a higher capacity and a lot more functionality, like detachable center column, additional short center column, 3 Monopod etc.

I want to know what Ricoh thinks about revamping their after sales service worldwide?
Secondly, since the sales is going up in India along with the rest of the world, what is ricoh's future plan about increasing business in India. Also, the price range is pretty different than USA. Do they have any plan to normalize it?
