I would buy this product again.


from Alabama  -  Photo Enthusiast

I bought this tripod to replace a sturdy but heavy metal tripod. I would not have believed how such a light tripod could provide such steady support and also be so versatile.


Extremely pleased with this tripod!


from Venice, Fl.  -  Photo Enthusiast

This is not a travel tripod, but is lightweight and strong enough to be used for shots of wildlife; it is also excellent in the studio for portraits or macro shots. I'm very pleased with it. The ball head will hold a 300mm lens firmly, but a larger head or a gimble is recommended for longer lens.
