perfect for my needs
“I’m not a professional photographer, I have a Canon S3 IS and a Lensmate adapter with a couple filters, that’s about it. The main things I photograph are my artwork, friends/family and things for reference images/ideas (objects, landscapes, etc.), this tripod works great for all of those. It’s sturdy, looks nice and works exactly like it should. I don’t drag it around with me all the time and I treat it well, I expect it to last me at least a couple years. If you pretty much just do a lot of miscellaneous amateur photography and you’d like something better than those cheap, generic tripods but don’t want to spend a ton of money then I’d highly recommend this one. I think it’s great and I was actually pretty impressed with it when I opened it up. “ – By JW

Well Made and Definitely Worth the Investment
“I love this tripod! I am extremely happy with my purchase. It’s built heavy duty (like its name implies). All controls operate easily and stay in the position you put them in. It’s a trust-worthy piece of equipment that will definitely make my ‘shooting sessions’ easier, with a higher quality of photo. Quick shipping and well packaged. I’m happy all the way around with this purchase. The bubble level and feet which allow a soft stand or spiked stand are nice as well and can actually be used (unlike on similar ones that are not dependable). Most definitely worth the investment.” – By Tracey Wilson

Robust, well-made tripod, but not really “heavy duty”
“Very pleased with the tripod – it has a very nice silky feel to the catches and threads that hold the head in place. I wouldn’t call it ‘heavy duty’ by any stretch, but it can handle my Nikon D50 with a Nikkor 70-300mm zoom on it, without much problem. I have used a video tripod with my camera and it kept everything pretty tight and steady, for even long night-time shots. This one does the same, but isn’t as heavy or bulky to carry.” – By L Von Steiner

An amazing deal
“I seriously doubt you can find the quality and size of this tripod at a similar price, great bang for the buck. Have used this on my driveway, the deck and even a slippery hill, all with great success. “ – By B. Goodman

Hard to beat for the price
“This is an excellent value for the $ spent. The tripod is lightweight, stable and very easy to use. I particularly like the bubble level and the ease of camera attachment and removal. It provides a stable platform under most conditions. If you are shooting under windy conditions where there are gusts above 30-40 mph, there is some loss of stability. If there is a slight weakness, it is using the tripod for panoramic shooting, where there is some loss of linearity at the extremes of 3 or 4 overlapping exposures.” – By mac convert

Light but effective
“This is a very good tripod. It’s not quite as easy to use such as a VERY expensive tripod, but overall it’s pretty easy to use. The only thing is, when you want to shoot in high angle and then switch to low angle, you have to release the camera and then put it back the other way. Other than that, it’s stable, it has a quick release, and it looks and feels very professional. “ – By A Kid’s Review

solid construction, great value
“It’s not a ball-joint but for the price it’s quite good. Very stable, but perhaps not heavy enough if you are really looking for something professional. Build quality is quite satisfactory. “ – By Jared W. Lynem

Great budget tripod
“This tripod is great for anyone on a budget. Its construction, while not overly impressive, gives the sense that it won’t tip over. Beyond that, it does what it’s meant to do — holds a camera steady and allows you as the photographer to make adjustments easily and with precision. The built-in level helps get things straight, while the adjustment knobs are easy to learn and work well for quick adjustments. I really can’t ask for anything more for the price.” – By M. Williams

excellent value for money
“I recently purchased this tripod and have to say that we are delighted with it’s quality and versatility. For the price, I would not have expected an item of this standard – You can probably pay a ton more and end up less satisfied than we are.” – By C B-Smith
Rating: ★★★★★

Very sturdy, minor inconveniences
“I am new to videography. I just bought a Canon Vixia HG10 (High Def camcorder) and wanted a tripod solid enough to hold up the camera without any issues. For that concern, this tripod is excellent. It does its job fantastically and is very easy to extend, lock, and unlock with the tab mechanism built into the legs.” – By J. Dean
