Smoke damaged goods – 1.5M Aluminum Alloy Digital Camera Tripod (5KG Load Max) Reviews

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

Pros:
Sturdy tripod, well built
Cons:
Smoke damaged, cannot be used inside because of the strong smell
Other:
I was quite suprised when I opened the shipment package. The casing nor the postal package did not smell, but the tripod itself has a very, VERY strong smoke smell. In some point of time, it has been near a bigger fire. I tried to ventilate the tripod several days outside, with no success. Wiping or washing it has also success next to none. The smell is so strong that keeping it inside for couple of hours, the whole room will smell of smoke.
Bottomline:
So when you order this product, please make sure with Dealextreme that they _REALLY CHECK_ your tripod isn't smoke damaged. The smell is very strong and there's no real way to get rid of it.
