Excerpt: First of all, this is not a lightweight travel tripod, while it may be travel-sized with the head and tube removed, the tripod weighs in at just over 3 pounds. This heft makes for a stable shooting platform for most SLRs and mini-cams.
Excerpt: This is a great tripod. Sturdy and seems to be well made. With a telephoto lens and the camera in the portrait instead of the landscape position, I had to hold my camera up as it kept slowly turning downward.
Excerpt: [...]Great tripod [...].Using it to attach D40x/D7000, 18-200, and SB600 flash.The pan can jerk a bit to get it going then it's smooth once you get it going. It's fairly lightweight, though not a featherweight (~2.8lbs).
Pros: Attaches Firmly, Good Stability, Large Range of Motion, Strong Clamp
Excerpt: I wanted a nice light tripod I can carry around with me and this one definitely fit the bill. It's built nice. Panning is smooth. Tilt is a little rough but nothing too bad. I love the ability to get the legs spread out more for lower/macro shots and the removable center column.
Pros: Attaches Firmly, Good Stability, Lightweight, Strong Clamp
Excerpt: I bought this one for my Dad for Xmas. I wasn't sure which one to get, so I did a little research. I was looking for something that was light, but with good stability. There were a lot of good reviews on a similar model, but I opted for this one bacause the others were too short.
Excerpt: Little bigger and heavier than expected and described. Quality looks good and the legs really collapse down. Looking forward to using it with my EOS7D and big lenses. Got it because of the weight ratings.
