I use the Slik Pro 330 tripod
Max. height (centre column raised): 160cm
Max. height (centre column down): 124cm
Weight: about 1.6kg with head.
I chose this model because it was the most value-for-money tripod I could find. It holds my entry-level DSLR and any of my lenses (see signature for list) very steadily. I didn't need or want anything more expensive (paid S$150) or heavier. Highly recommended if you use a small DSLR and no bazooka lenses
Unlike the lower-end tripods Slik and other brands make, the Pro 330 has adjustable leg angles, meaning you can spread individual legs out even wider on uneven surfaces and things like that.
A bonus for those who stay in colder countries is that this model comes with foam grips on the legs, so you can hold the tripod without needing to touch the metal parts.
Things I don't like about the kit:
-The DX suffix in the name refers to the 3-way pan-and-tilt head sold with the legs. It will serve light users fine, but I opted to buy a ballhead (the excellent Manfrotto 496RC2) to use instead.
-The Slik tripod bag (S$15) I bought at the same time is as basic as tripod bags get - unpadded carrying strap & thin material for the bag. Lots of tiny holes have formed in the bag's exterior, but maybe I'm not balancing the weight right or something...
-Nothing to dislike about the legs! But I didn't feel very confident using a borrowed Canon 50D+battery grip+Speedlite+70-200 lens...this tripod isn't meant for that.
Note: Slik also has a lighter tripod at a similar price range, the "Sprint Pro" series. I tried that in the store as well, and I don't recommend it for DSLRs because it's less sturdy with thinner, 4-section legs. That series seems to be marketed for prosumer 'large-compact' cameras - it might suit mirrorless cameras - but as with all tripods, always best to bring your camera to the store to try before you buy.
P.S.: Anybody taller than 6-feet, or who doesn't like using centre columns, will likely find himself/herself crouching or bending a fair bit to use this tripod.
