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.
Excerpt: Don't buy this product. The Adorama salesman touted this product as the best thing since sliced bread. One of the retractable legs does not work properly. It is not a quick release. The tilt feature does not work.
Excerpt: Originally, I was impressed with the quality of materials and construction. the only good thing i can say at this point is that the quick release and grip to the camera is decent. in under 6 months, 2 of the clamps developed creep.
Pros: Attaches Firmly, Inexpensive, Large Range of Motion
Excerpt: I was planning on purchasing a $179 tripod when the man who was helping me (I think his name was Larry and he was SUPER awesome/helpful) suggested this tripod instead. Sturdy, easy to carry, and coincidentally, the exact height that I needed (without checking beforehand - dumb, I know).
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.
Excerpt: I was impressed with the quality when I received it. I bought two others at big-box stores and returned both Manfrottos, too much plastic. I contacted Adorama and they suggested the Cullman and it is awesome for the money.
Pros: Good Quality, Good Stability, Lightweight, Unfolds Quickly
