Perfect Travel Tripod (Almost)

Oak Creek Explorer, Adorama
27 July 2013
  • Excerpt: I have several tripods (Gitzo, Manfrotto, and Induro), but I needed a truly lightweight and compact tripod that could bear the weight of my D700 and 5-pound lens and be easy to carry in luggage or in a small back pack.
  • Pros: Good maximum height, Quality construction
  • Cons: Four-section Legs, Non-reversing Column

Great tripod, extremely impressed.

Adorama
11 June 2013
  • Excerpt: I was hoping for the best and I was not disappointed. I love the way it folds down to under 17 inches. It's light and will fit nicely into my smaller piece of luggage. I'm very happy with my purchase.
  • Pros: Folds Small, Good Stability, Lightweight, Unfolds Quickly

Bill G, Adorama

  • Excerpt: I took a long time to figure out this purchase. I did a boatload of research and read a lot of blogs to come up with this purchase. For my needs, this set of legs was the best balance of weight, load capacity, and cost.I have a six week long photo trip planned for the second quarter of 2012.

  • Excerpt: Great Tripod!I bought this for a trip to the Grand Canyon and beyond. On the way back out one of my walking poles bit the dust (pun intended), and I opened this up - tied the legs at the bottom and kept walking. It did great for that too and is no worse for ware, still a solid tripod.

Great travel tripod

smurgy, WEX
4 August 2012
  • Summary: Spent quite a while looking at cheaper alternatives, but my previous Gitzo (10 years old and still perfect) was one of the best photographic accessories I ever bought. Decided to stick with Gitzo, and really pleased I did. The same great build quality and attention to details.
  • Pros: Durable, Great Features, Lightweight

  • Pros: Great Features, Lightweight

Tolles Stativ

Neandertaler, Amazon
22 December 2014
  • Summary: Es gibt sicher billigere Stative, aber keine preiswerteren. Da wackelt nichts, vorausgesetzt man hat in den richtigen Kugelkopf investiert. Dabei ist das geringe Gewicht ein Traum.

Gitzo gleich Qualität

Alex D., Amazon
6 October 2013
  • Summary: Gitzo ist halt Gitzo, die Verarbeitung ist erstklassisch und die Funktionalität bei einem sehr geringen Eigengewicht ist auch voll und ganz gegeben. Über die Fertigungstoleranzen der Rohre brauch ich gar nicht erst zu schreiben, nur soviel sei gesagt, das auch bei geöffneter Klemmverschraubung die...

einfach nur "PERFEKT"

Markison, Amazon
9 November 2012
  • Summary: Wer etwas brauchbares sucht, ist mit diesem Stativ bestens bedient. + kleine Packmasse + hohe Steifigkeit und Torsionsfestigkeit + sehr leicht und robust + hohe Traglast + genialer und durchdachter Schnellverschluss-Mechanismus dieses Stativ ist in keinster Weise mit günstigen Carbon-Stativen zu...
