Great Little Tripod !!!

I love this tripod!!! Although I have a lot of tripods, this quickly became my favorite. First time I used it I was walking around in the downtown area shoting some of the historic building we have. The light weight was definetly a plus. After several hours walking with camera extra lenses and tripod I felt no muscle strain at all. I gave this tripod a 5 star rating only because I couldn't give it a 4.5 or 4.75 star rating. The only purpose I would not want to use is in a permanent studio set...

I love this tripod!!! Although I have a lot of tripods, this quickly became my favorite. First time I used it I was walking around in the downtown area shoting some of the historic building we have. The light weight was definetly a plus. After several hours walking with camera extra lenses and tripod I felt no muscle strain at all. I gave this tripod a 5 star rating only because I couldn't give it a 4.5 or 4.75 star rating. The only purpose I would not want to use is in a permanent studio setting. I used to be a professional photographer using medium format (i.e. "645") cameras. The reason I bought this tripod is that except for my old Bogen heavy duty studio tripod I couldn't get extra quick release shoes. With this tripod I bought several extra QR shoes and put them on all my DSLR Cameras so I can quickly change from one camera to another faster than I can change lenses. This was the deciding factor in my selection. If you notice that I put light weight both has a Pro and a Con. No tripod is great for all situations and the only drawback with this tripod is in those situations when you need a heavy tripod for extensive studio work. In a pinch (such as in a temporary studio or visiting a studio) I would not hestate using this tripod, but would normally use my heavy tripod when in a studio. I highly recommend this tripod especially if you have more than one DSRL.

What I expected for the price.

By

from Baltimore, MD  -  Photo Enthusiast

I purchased this particular product for several reasons. It was at my price point, it was made by a respected name, and it had many of the qualities I wanted in a tripod. I generally use it taking wildlife photos. I do get a bit of camera shake if I use it fully extended but a remote switch would probably solve that. It is easy to carry around and I strap it right to my camera bag and I barely notice its additional weight.

Good light duty tripod

By

from Averill Park, New York  -  Photo Enthusiast

I bought this tripod to support a small barn door astro photo system. I owned a similar Slik tripod 25 years ago but it was lost in hurricane Katrina. This model is not as sturdy as my earlier Slik due to the all plastic head. The aluminum legs seem pretty solid and the rubber/spiked feet are an excellent feature for my application. However the quick release plate, while convenient, is another source of instability. While this is a good light tripod for most applications I will have to move to a heavier model for astro photography.

nice tripod for the price

By

from Washington DC  -  Photo Enthusiast

I use it mostly for landscape photography. It's one of the best out there for the price - well cosntructed, lighter than it looks and the head is changeable. I do wish the angles of the three legs can be separately adjusted.

Excellent Light Weight Tripod

By

from Minnesota  -  Photo Enthusiast

Very stable for its light weight. The quick release feature is a boon and feels quite solid. All around good tripod for travel and medium duty.

Well made, smooth operating tripod

By

from Mundelein, IL  -  Photo Enthusiast

This reasonable cost tripod will work well in almost all situations. A little too bulky, heavy for hiking & extended carry use. 3-way head has smooth movement and lock-downs, easy to make fine adjustments, although "(Fluid/3-way) Head" is a bit of an over statement. This tripod is sturdy enough that it can likely support somewhat over the stated 4 lbs, maybe up to 6.
