Great Tripod for half the price
“THIS IS ONE GREAT TRIPOD!!! Its design is geared, I think, for advanced to pro use. Of course anyone will benefit from using it. It is solid, very portable, and can be configured to a multitude of positions. My fav feature is the center column can be set horizontally for a variety of setups. Fully extende it stands about 5’10” before raising the center column. To use fully extended you need a small ladder unless you are 6’10” tall. I highly recomend this amazingly priced pro grade tripod.” – By W. G. Alger
