Well Built But Smell! – 1.5M Aluminum Alloy Digital Camera Tripod (5KG Load Max) Reviews

posted by stupe on 01/08/2011 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
For the price you are paying, this come close, if not as good as any original expensive tripod. the ballhead is smooth and the baseplate locks well on the ballhead. There is no movement creep even when i mount my dSLR with batt grip and a 10-24lense. Comes with a bag and locking tools - this is a bonus!
Cons:
Smelly. Smelt of burn smell or maybe it is the grease smell. Been using this for the past few months and the smell is still there.
Other:
Bottomline:
For the price, it is hard to beat. WOuld be great if it had a hook at the bottom middle shaft so you could hang some heavy object to further stabilise the tripod in windy condition.
