Very good lightweight tripod – Professional Lightweight Universal Retractable Tripod for SLR/Digital Camera (155CM-Full Length) Reviews

posted by maxalvarez on 08/08/2012 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
- Easy and fast to setup - Lightweight and sturdy - Legs locking mechanism works great - Weight hook if extra stability is needed - Ball head with quick release plate
Cons:
- Spirit level is quite useless, as well as the compass. - The central tube wasn´t tightened well with the screw, fixed it with a tiny piece of plastic into the screw hole and now works great. - Ball head may be better - Good price but might be lower
Other:
I´ve put this ballhead (SKU.118420) to replace the original one, but finally my tripod is wearing both, since the quick release plate of the included ballhead is quite more comfortable for use.
Bottomline:
I liked the first one so much that I bought a second one, for lightning purposes (As I own two 2,2 meter lightstands, this is a good addition for a third flash unit). Really good tripod, very lightweight, reliable and strong.
