tricky while adjusting leveling


from Fairfax, VA  -  Photo Enthusiast

There is no short on phto gears. You get what you paid for, applies to tripod too. My previous 20 years old SLIK serves its duty and still working. However, I am looking for something for sturdy and accurate. This is is a no joke tripod, it operates smoothly like a professional gear. Two things need to improve though. One, the manual does not say clearly how to adjust leveling. It only mention the red ring at the bottom of center column for leveling..but you need to adjust the leveling on the half ball itself and then tighten it with that red ring. I felt stupid after hours of searching on Google. Second, the pan bar can be oriented for right hand operation but it is obvious the original design was for left handed. By reversing the pan bar for right hand, the tilt control is also reversed...


Have Tripod, Will Travel


from Prescott, AZ  -  Semi-pro Photographer

The focus of my photography is wildlife and travel. This requires a tripod that is sturdy, light and versatile, and also small enough to fit into a carry-on bag (with pan-tilt head detatched). This tripod fits the bill. In the wild, animals and birds don't wait for you to set up a tripod. This is a real problem when using super-telephoto lenses. Previously, my solution was to use a monopod to help steady my shots. However, the 755CX3 is able to function as both a tripod and monopod. Its light and compact enough that I can simply use the attached clips to keep the legs clipped together, while extending just one leg.... shazam! It's a monopod, ready for action. Love it.


Great Travel Tripod


from Prescott, AZ  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I travel often for location shoots, and the 755CX3 MDEVE perfectly meets my needs for a light-weight, versatile tripod I can pack into a carry-on bag. Very solid support and weight-to-strength ratio.


Great Medium-duty Tripod


from Prescott, AZ  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I bought the 755CX3 MDEVE Carbon Fiber Tripod with 50mm Half Ball to meet my needs for a light weight, versatile still and video field tripod that would be compact and easy carry. I also selected it because it allows me to shoot from very low angles, as well as higher angles. Of course, the ball head is a big advantage when it comes to being able to quickly and easily level the camera. It does everything I bought it for, and does it very well.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  does the center column go horizontal like the 055cxpro?
MICHAEL W  No, it does not have the Q90° Quick Center Column system. I have a 055CXPro with 701 fluid head & a 755CX3 MDEVE with a 501 fluid head. Michael
Shopper  Is the centre column reversible?
BLAINE D  This has been a great tripod for me. It is very light, durable,super easy to setup and I would highly recommend this tripod for many uses and cameras. Make sure you get a good head to go along with it. Great purchase... Blaine D
