Excellent Lightweight Tripod with load capacity lower than indicated
“I purchased this tripod after deciding that the 700DX wasfar too big to be hauled around.Actually it is very compact and portable. The onlylimitation to consider is that the load capacity of 5Kgshould be reduced by half and that the equipment should bewell balanced on top of it, waiting for the central columnto stop vibrating. Actually I shot a Nikon F3 HP with MD4and with Nikkor 300mm EDIF wide open, column extended andthe pictures were sharp.” – By Luca Alessandro Remotti
Just What I Was Looking For
“I use it for casual shooting and I didn’t want to spend a lot of money but didn’t want junk. I found this to be a great compromise it is well built and it is easy to set up and use. And to make it better it came with a free case.” – By Bill L
“Great travel tripod that can be close to eye level or as low as 10″ (no need for accessories), it even comes with a bag. Small enough for backpacking and versatile enough to be truly useful. For a tripod with similar features and less weight you’d have to pay at least twice as much. A great bargain.” – By Bill D
Excellent tripod for the price
“The tripod is stable with my nikon D90 and 18-200 lens, including when the camera is tilted 90 degrees in portrait mode. It folds down small, and is quite light, but could be made lighter if you swapped out the relatively heavy pan head for a lighter ball head. The pan head works fine for me since I plan on using it for some pano shots. I would prefer that the quick release bracket had a better clamp mechanism.” – By RedGreenBlue
“The tripod I had was to large (long when folded up) and heavy to take hiking/backpacking. I looked at the carbon fiber tripods but they were way past my budget. This was priced in my range, had a small fold up size that made it easy to attach to the outside of my backpacks. It had a to of good reviews on a lot of different sites.” – By Udabob
