  • Excellent tripod for the price.

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    + very sturdy

    > the tripod is extremely sturdy. keeps a firm stance anywhere you put it. it has a very nice weight to help.

    + nice camera base lock

    > the locking mechanism to keep the camera in place is sturdy and stiff to the point where it can be sometimes difficult to unlock it.

    + smooth panning movement

    > panning for videos is very smooth with this tripod

    + comes with carrying bag

    > although ...

    Cons:

    - i purchased two of these and one of the bags could not be opened. the zipper was stuck and would not move (to the point where i broke the zipper handle off). the bag had to be cut open.

    - no handle for video cameras

    > the head that comes with this tripod is seemingly built strictly for photography. can still be used for video, though, rather than holding a handle you hold your camera body instead.

    OtherThoughts:

    - i have a manfrotto that was purchased, brand new, at around the same price. this blows it out of the water.

    Bottomline:

    - need an extremely sturdy and durable tripod for the price of a "cheap" name-brand? this is it.
