Excerpt: Acceptable for use with very lightweight cameras. Affords advantageous features (ballhead, quick-release plate, spreadable as well as extendable legs, reversible center pole, convertible feet, foam-covered leg, leg clamp-locks).
Excerpt: This tripod is a great second tripod for travel and family outings. I probably wouldn't recommend it for professional gigs but if you just need something light and don't want to be held down this is the tripod to get.
Excerpt: This is a quality product at a fair price. I worried that at this price range, I wouldn't be able to find a quality tripod without cutting corners and sacrificing functionality, but I worried in vain. It is well built and feels tight and sturdy when using compacts and smaller dslr cameras.
Excerpt: For the price ($), it's actually pretty decent. It has independent rotation sideways (good for panorama), it's reasonably sturdy (my camera weighs ~1kg, D5300 with 18-140mm lens), and very lightweight. Don't expect miracles. The bubble level is almost useless for example.
Excerpt: I wanted a light yet sturdy carry around tripod that would get very low.for me this fits the bill.well made. I particularly like the two section/reversible center column .The ball head is basic, but will get the job done.I replaced mine with a 3 pro for a bit better control and to handle a bit more...
Pros: Folds Small, Good Stability, Lightweight, Unfolds Quickly
Cons: Best Used Unextended, Very Light For Windy Days
Excerpt: We use this with some canon cameras in settings where we need stability and speed, in both getting shots and also adding and removing the tripod. For the most part, this tripod does well. But the weakest part is the quick release, which is a little tricky.
Excerpt: I used this for my recent trip and loved it. It is compact yet sturdy and fits nicely in the tripod pouch on my camera bag. It is less stable than some tripods but gets the job done for me with my midrange dslr with a moderately heavy lens on it.
