Nice and light – 603 Magnalium Folding Studio Photography Light Tripod - Black (Max. 5kg) Reviews

posted by Chacking on 04/02/2013 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
It does what it says; folds up, extends vertically and can hold a light in the air.
Cons:
The plastic base has a pointy metal Phillips screw going through the side to pin it to the outer metal tube. The screw's too long and can also pin the middle metal tube and wedge it so it doesn't extend. Easy fix, I dropped a 8mm rubber item down the outer tube to keep the base of the middle tube above the screw.
Other:
I could have dremeled the screw shorter. Or swapped in a shorter screw
Bottomline:
It's good at its simple task.
