Good tripod - terrible head

ScubaZ, B&H Photo
2 February 2015
  • Excerpt: This tripod is great for traveling and backpacking. Sturdy but light, and folds nicely to fit inside a carryon roll-aboard. However, the quick release on the head is awful. The small square plates won't grip a pro camera body vertically without sagging, and the medium rectangular plates that will...

  • Excerpt: I have several tripods for my larger lenses and more serious work. But I have been looking for a small, light and stable travel tripod for some time and ended up with this one. The maximum load it will get will be a 70-200mm f2.8L IS II, probably mounted on a Canon 5DIII body.

  • Excerpt: I bought this tripod a month ago and it works brilliantly, it is compact and sturdy enough for my camera set up which is about 4lbs max.

  • Excerpt: This is hands down the best tripod I've purchased and should be my last tripod purchase. Like a lot of photographers have said, you go through 1 or 2 or sometimes 3 tripods before realizing that you should just pony up and spend/invest your money in a high end tripod.

Perfect Travel Tripod

16 March 2013
  • Excerpt: It's hard to beat this tripod for travel as it is so light and compact. One review I read mentioned the smaller 5th leg extension to be a bit wobbly but I can't say I agree with that comment. Even completely extended to its maximum height, the tripod is very solid from top to bottom.

Lightweight and Sturdy

  • Excerpt: Perfect travel tri-pod. Small, light weight, sturdy, opens for quick usage and fits perfectly with my Lowpro camera bag. Only thing I would change is the price, but in this case (travel tri-pods) you get what you pay for.

  • Excerpt: Just used ... I like the stability for the light weight. Far superior to my previous tripods. I have bone spurs that cause weight issues and this tripod and head are very stable with minimum weight.
