So Far, So Good


from Albuquerque, New Mexico  -  Photo Enthusiast

So far it seems like an inexpensive but serviceable tripod. Obviously not of the highest quality but did not expect so for the very reasonable price.


Anxious to Road Test It


from Carmichael, CA  -  Photo Enthusiast

Replacing a Gitzo Reporter (tank) with something an old lady can lug around and not throw her back out. I love the lightness and the convenient carry case. I'm fond of low light photography and waterfalls and this should help stabilize the camera on slow shutter shots.




from New York  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I just got tripod. I was little worried about quality because one of review was terrible. But I checked tripod was not disappoint at all! I have two other tripod, one is very heavy & strong for my studio shooting, and the other is very lightweight but it can not be low down more then18 inches low! Guess what? Fresh point new tripod dose everything what I want set tripod & it is really cheap price as a carbon fiber tripod. I will enjoy it from now on! Excellent!

Questions about this item:

chuck m  what type of head is included? Can it be replaced with another type?
MATT H  Unless otherwise specified in the bundle, no these are 'just' tripod legs with a standard head mount.
Bob B  In one place states twist lock then another place flip lock a better photo of the tripiod leg would be helpful.? Thanks ,Bob
STEFAN J  The locks on the legs are of the flip kind. The rubber feet can be adjusted by a screw mechanism. I agree: a close-up photo of the joints would be helpful.
Bob R  What is the folded length of the tripod?
CHARLES R  The folded length is approx. 25 in. with the ball head attached. It fits nicely in the case included. I use a sling pack loaded and the tripod in the case is comfortable on my other shoulder. I hope this helps.
