Excerpt: Researched tripods more than any items ever ordered and this was the result. Couldn't be more pleased. Rock solid and performs with precision. I complemented this with a tiny travel tripod, but this isn't overly massive so could certainly do double-duty if so inclined. Really love it.
Excerpt: This is my first real tripod which I wanted for a DSLR with a small telephoto lens. After using is a bit I'm very happy with the unit. It's good sized and stable. Possibly could be big if that's an issue. I'm 6'1" and really like the added height.
Excerpt: This tripod is built like a tank able to hold substantial weight rock steady yet light enough to be quite portable. It's not the lightest by any means but if you believe that the diameter of a tripods's legs is important to it's purpose this is the tripod for you.
Excerpt: Very good tripod. I am a professional bird photographer and I use the CT313 tripod with a Wimberley Gimbal Head as my primary camera support. It is light and easy to carry as well as strong and rigid, and it provides excellent support for a pro DSLR and long lens.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Fast Adjustments, Lightweight, Sturdy
Excerpt: This is a marvelous tripod that will hold most large rigs steady. This tripod is built extremely well. It has all of the fit and finish you would expect for well crafted carbon tripods. The quick minimal twist of the wrist allows you to lock and unlock the tripods legs quickly.
Excerpt: I gave it a four star because I have not used it much yet. I can tell right now that I am going to like this tripod very much and will update my review in five to six months. The legs and twist locks work just fine, smooth. It looks very professional and the BHL2 ballhead works fine on it.
Pros: Folds Small, Good Stability, Lightweight, Unfolds Quickly
Excerpt: This tripod feels extremely well made, light yet solid and substantial enough to work well in the field with my Canon EOS cameras. The leg locks and center lock are easy to use,firm when closed and both the leg collars and the center collar are quick to hand. So far I am very pleased with it.
Pros: Good Stability, Lightweight, Unfolds Quickly
Excerpt: I spent quite some time researching for a duo grab-and-go astronomy & product photography tripod to save space and cost from buying both separately. I then came across this brand here while checking for a tripod in a price range of $300-500.
