  • Really great value for money

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    Nice sturdy build quality!

    Ballhead moves without friction and locks very well.

    My Canon 40d with both the Sigma 27-70 2.8 and the Sigma 80-400 are no problem for this tripod nor the ballhead.

    It is fairly stable on maximum hight, but the lowest leg parts are a bit flimsy and i don't know the wind (vibration) resistance yet.

    But it's possible to put the legs in many positions so finding a stable setup should be no issue in general.

    Cons:

    Finish of the ballhead is a little rough on the outside. The ball itself looks well finished though.

    Legs could be bigger for a 8kg specified tripod. I'll say, till 5 kg your safe, above that you may want to keep the lowest leg parts retracted.

    OtherThoughts:

    This tripod is not made off composite materials but made from ALU (the legs at least), so do not get confused with the earlier review above. This is not a real dissapointment in my opinion, but you might think different about it.

    Bottomline:

    All in all, very great tripod for the money!

    Some minor finishing blemishes on the ballhead outer finish.
