Great for the price
“I’m in no way qualified to compare this tripod with some of the more expensive ones on the market. I will say however that this one is surprisingly nice. It is very sturdy with a really nice pan-head. The body is solidly constructed and is really great for all of my video/photo needs. If I had one complaint it would be that it takes some getting used to for ejecting the quick shoe. The locking mechanism is a little tricky. Overall though I was really impressed. I upgraded from a run of the mill sunpack tripod that was garbage so I could be bias as to the quality of this product.” – By D. Rogers
“I bought this to steady my shots, mostly inside product shots. I have been using an older unit then I saw this in a store. This tripod is rock solid, light, and the height adjustment is a breeze with the lever legs, and the center post. The camera mounts to a simple release clip that holds the shoe solid when attached but can be released (the shoe) easily to bring your camera to the computer. Angle adjustments are simple and aided by level bubbles if you wamt. I was surprised to see a carrying bag in the box.” – By Marc
Great tripod for the money
“The head while not fluid filled certainly acts like one, the rotation is smooth and predictable and stiction free. Having the 3 way head is great. When the tripod is on a sloped surface it allows you to precisely set it up with the built in level. The locking levers on the legs look and feel sturdy, and should hold up quite well. I could not find another tripod with this feature set at the close out price of this one, and having actually received and seen the features and build quality I can say it is worth its retail price as well.” – By M. Mann
