    Good value

    posted by shawnsavio on 08/31/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - Relatively lightweight - locking mechanism for the legs is easy to operate - good height (I'm 5'11 and the camera viewfinder is almost at eye level when the tripod is fully extended) - hook for extra weight - quite inexpensive for a ball head tripod.
    Cons:
    - not sure about the longevity of the 'twist to lock/unlock' mechanism on the individual tripod leg sections. - build quality i...

    posted by Rossen on 12/01/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Light and compact. Ball head. Simple and quick to operate. Inclusion of a good quality carrying bag.

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

    Pros:
    It looks like velbon light tripods. I think it has low price. Also really very light. It has ball head but not uncomfortable 3d head. Deliver with a case.
    Cons:
    Has a plastic base (not composite like velbon). I think that very heavy cover for this tripod (about 165g, head about 280g for ...

    Pros:
    I bought this tripod one month ago, and I am pretty satisfied with it, I have to say it is my first tripod, I use with a Canon D500, I checked the other tripods of the same price, and I think I chose the right one. Very cheap, so light to carry, maybe too l...
    Cons:
    The build quality is not the best one, but you cant ask for more with that price.
