Excerpt: I have used a pretty entry to mid level tripod and have had issues with shake and stability. I shot with a sinar f rail 4x5 camera. My first test were super low light at 1/8 of a second with no shake. Blew my mind, last tripod I will own.

Excerpt: Well designed for quick set up, very stable (which is the number one reason to buy it) and quite light. I can't think of a con except it is fairly expensive. But hay, it should last for many years of use.

You can't find better value than this world class, Pro Tripod and head. This tripod is a joy to use.
