Very good tripod
“I am very happy with this tripod. Very good quality, very stable (I use it with my Pentax K10D and a 18-250mm lens),compact, ergonomic… just perfect!” – By Abadie Yannick
Lightweight and stable
“This is a nice lightweight tripod that’s stable. Initially one of the legs stuck but that’s worked out with use. The 2 levels built into the head are helpful for panorama shots. The legs lock securely and the tripod has a hook for adding weight for windy locations. Overall finish is nice. It’s well made. The head will hold the rated 11 pounds but tends to droop a touch after tightening with heavy lenses. Then it requires readjustment to set the camera. With lighter lenses that’s not a problem. With the Bigma on my camera, it is. I’m used to it and don’t think about the process much any more.” – By Michael McKee
Excellent quality tripod
“This tripod has everything and more I could want in a tripod. The camera slides easily off and you can order additional mounting plates for multiple cameras. And the ball head tightens down easily without any effort, holding the camera securely in place. This is as professional as I need right now. The tripod is very sturdy and well made. It is not as light as the cheaper tripods or perhaps carbon fiber tripods, but it is solid and holds my camera securely in place. You can adjust the legs to stand at three different angles, or even turn the center pole upside down and mount the camera down low for those unique shots.” – By Bill Yinaire
