Excerpt: This is a Great tripod! It has spikes on the feet that are retractable. This is perfect for wooded areas, natural areas, like beaches,etc. Others do not have this feature. It is very sturdy and easy to adjust to any unlevel ground. It is the perfect weight. Too light and it would be unsteady. Too heavy and it would be hard to carry very far (in the woods, beach, etc.) The leg width and length are just what anyone would need. Very easy to adjust for any situation.
Excerpt: I primarily use this tripod for video recording purposed while storm chasing. It has stood sturdy in up to 70 mph winds thus far, so I would recommend it for anyone who needs stability in the field. The tripod is rather heavy, and it doesn't come with a bag, so I would recommend purchasing one if you will be carrying equipment for any extended distance.
Excerpt: Our Biology department is using two of these tripods with spotting scopes for our ornithology class. They can be quickly converted to use with our Canon T2I and 100-400mm lens for photos thanks to the quick release plates.<br /><br />Sturdy, lightweight, priced right, well made...what more could you ask for?
Excerpt: I use this tripod with my Nikon D7000 and the heaviest lens I own for it is a 70-300mm telephoto zoom lens. The tripod does nothing but stand up to its name and works perfectly. It is very sturdy, very lightweight, and easy to set up. The only downside is that it doesn't get much smaller than two feet. However, since it is lightweight and so stable it is hardly a downside at all. A great product and worth every penny.
Pros: Good Stability, Lightweight, Unfolds Quickly
Excerpt: I bought this tripod mostly to take hiking. I do nature photography and use an Olympus E620 camera. I looked for something with the right combination --- strong, lightweight and budget friendly. <br /><br />Strength: The tripod is strong and well designed. It's easy to adjust in hilly terrain and is very stable. <br /><br />Budget: It fit in my budget of less than $100. <br /><br />Light weight: It weighs less than 4 pounds.
Excerpt: I bought this for my 9 year old granddaughter that is just starting out on her photography journey. She was so excited. It held her camera and she was able to turn it easily. Good product at a good price.
Pros: Folds Small, Good Stability, Lightweight, Unfolds Quickly
Excerpt: This is my first tripod. I have borrowed some to learn what I do and don't like. I like everything about the way this functions. The quick release head is something I hadn't seen on any others. Very nice. Love that it's light weight yet still tall enough that I don't need to bend down. The only downside[...]I had to disassemble the head from the center column for travel and somehow the screw was stripped when I took the head off.
Pros: 3 Way Head-easy to use, Leg Claps-quick easy, Light Weight, Quick Release Plate, Tall
Summary: Das Magnesit 519 ist für Anfänger hervorragend geeignet. Es ist leicht und trotzdem standfest, wenn man es nicht gerade bei wirklich starkem Wind oder sonstigen widrigen Umständen einsetzen möchte. Die Stärken des Stativs sind klar ein ebener Untergrund und Innenräume, aber durch die Spikes an den Stativbeinen und die unabhängige Bewegungs- und Auszugsmöglichkeiten wird es auch im Gelände für Einsteiger eine gute und preiswerte Alternative zu den hochwertigeren Kollegen.
Summary: Ich suchte ein Stativ, das gut zu bedienen ist und mich nicht ärgert für meine beiden Kompaktkameras. Auch bis zur Größe einer leichten SLR sollte es halten. Letzeres traue ich ihm ohne weiteres zu, ohne es bisher testen zu können. Bei den beiden Kompakten funktioniert es erwartungsgemäß einwandfrei. Bedienbarkeit und Material sind ebenfalls ohne jede Beanstandung.
