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.

Just bought, used and lost

  • Excerpt: I like the Tripod very much, but I took it on my first outdoor shooting and the shoe (leg end) was lost during the shot and not found again. The shoes of the tripod are not really good attached and it seems now a big hassle to retreive that item.

It worths every penny

  • Excerpt: Very light weight and compact. I brought it for a trip to Sedona and Grand Canyon, it fits in my regular backpack and it still has room for my camera and other gears. I carry them all the time and never feel the urge to put it down.

Excellent, although expensive.

  • Excerpt: This is a very sturdy, rigid, reliable tripod. In the few months that I've owned it, I have carried it through very hostile environments without any hiccups. By hostile environment, I am talking about the Iraqi desert.

perfect gear for mid-class SLR

Roger, B&H Photo
15 August 2011
  • Excerpt: It could be your final target of tripod if your camera with lens is less than 6 lbs. Light weight, pretty sturdy and easy to pack and fit in my backpack, since the folded length is only 35cm
