Excellent tripod for the price – Metal 8KG Load Camera Tripod Stand (1.6-Meter Height) Reviews

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

Pros:
-Excellent load rating; holds up my 70-200 f/4L IS no problem at any angle.
-built in bubble level on the tripod and the head is very useful
-lightweight
-retracts to a small size
-easy to use
-good quality
-GREAT price
Cons:
-came in a dirty bag (very very dirty)
-one of the legs are looser than the others (but doesn't affect operation)
Other:
The bubble level is a great feature; however, if your camera body is bulky, it may obscure the bubble level since it sits too close to the mount. It'd be nice if it extends out a bit more. Works fine with a Canon 350D though.
Bottomline:
I tried looking for comparable tripods at a local camera store and was unable to find anything comparable for DOUBLE the price. Unbelievable value for the price. Highly recommended to everyone!
