Good value for the money

For the money, I couldn't have asked for much more. I've owned this tripod for about a year now. I routinely reverse the center post, which just requires unscrewing the center post. Some flexing of the legs is evident when they are fully extended, but the tripod remains stable even so. I like that the leg ends have metal spikes that can be used by screwing the rubber feet up. By hanging my camera bag from the hook at the bottom of the center post the tripod has remained stable in moderate...

For the money, I couldn't have asked for much more. I've owned this tripod for about a year now. I routinely reverse the center post, which just requires unscrewing the center post. Some flexing of the legs is evident when they are fully extended, but the tripod remains stable even so. I like that the leg ends have metal spikes that can be used by screwing the rubber feet up. By hanging my camera bag from the hook at the bottom of the center post the tripod has remained stable in moderate wind. The two levels (one on head and one on the tripod) are quite useful as well. I've only run into a few negatives so far. I have to release the middle lock to extend the bottom extension of the legs, which is a minor annoyance. The ball head also settles after you lock it down with a heavy lens attached. Most of the time I'm using small primes on my DSLR, so this hasn't been too much of a problem for me. The bottom line for me is that this tripod is plenty stable and has served me well. It is not as full featured or quick to set up as the tripods I've tried out at the local camera shops, but it gets the job done and I'm happy I got it.

it creeps

I was so excited that I could get a ball head tripod for under $100. I've had this tripod for about six months and it works well. It's easy to set up & take down. It even folds up small enough to put in a backback, but it totally creeps. When you tighten up the knob it falls about a 1/3 or a 1/2 of an inch. Such a pain when you finally have the perfect composition and the tripod drops!!!

Lightweight and easy to adjust

By

from Los Altos, CA  -  Casual Photographer

I bought this tripod for my mom with a Nikon P7800 for her birthday. My mother with her photography teacher say this tripod is a breeze to set and adjust. Mom has taken some very nice close-ups of flowers and also some very interesting landscapes/still lives with this tripod and her P7800.

Inexensive stable platform

By

from State College Pa  -  Photo Enthusiast

I purchased this after destroying another more expensive triod (fell out of my bike panier whilst going downhill at 40mph). I was so pleasantly suprised about how strong this thing is. It will easily hold an SLR, flash, and big wide lense... even vertically! Buy this first, and skip anything else under 120 bucks.

Reasonable Travel Tripod

By

from Ft. Worth, TX  -  Pro Photographer

Seems to be adequately stable for the size and weight. The only problem I have encountered is that several of the leg sections have extremely tight, stiff extensions. I haven't used it much so they may loosen up with use.

Edmond E  do the legs over extend for low angles?
WAYNE S  Yes they do, I`ve been really happy with this tripod.
Shopper  can you use an iPhone with this tripod?
ALEX R  This is a larger tripod that works well with entry level dslrs and point and shoot. It is threaded so unless you purchase an adapter an Iphone will not work right out of the box.
