to much play in the legs

  • Excerpt: My tripod came with a large dent on one of the legs.. so I had to return it. I didn't want a replacement after hands on with it. This tripod has an option to release all the legs with a release lever. Nice to extended and contract the legs. But with this you get a lot of play in the legs.
  • Cons: Cumbersome, Heavy, Unstable

Highly Recommended for Landscapes

  • Excerpt: Its big. Its heavy. Its rock-solid stable, even with 26+ lbs. of gear mounted, including large pano-head, camera and BIG lens all being buffeted by 25+ MPH wind gusts out on the open high-plains. It stands firm, and does what's its supposed to do . . . not move or shake or vibrate.

Love this tripod

  • Excerpt: I'm 6'6" tall. This was just one of three tripods that I found that could reach up to me instead of me going down to it. For the past year or so I've been into pan photography...I like to shoot more than what I can see through the viewfinder..

Solid tripod

  • Excerpt: I had been eyeing this tripod for years. Finally picked one up. Heavy as lead. But it's solid. I'm about to take it around the world. Figure I'll be strong as an ox afterwards ;)

Easy to use hard to lug around

  • Excerpt: Extremely easy to use tripod that is perfect for the studio. You will have to decide if the extra convenience of the tripod is worth the extra carrying weight if you are using the tripod outside of the studio. The automatic leg release system works as advertised.
  • Pros: Easy to Use
  • Cons: Bulky

Monster Tripod

9 August 2013
  • Excerpt: Rock solid and very strong. I do a lot of macro work professionally and needed a new studio tripod. This one is great because at its normal height it is perfect for my table top and I can adjust the legs outward if I need to lower the platform.
  • Pros: Durable, Great Picture Quality, Solid And Heavy Duty

The giraffe of all tripods!

Captured Memories, B&H Photo
23 July 2013
  • Excerpt: We used this tripod to capture the bride walking down the aisle, which is usually impossible once her guests stand up. It was really easy to just pop it up to full height when she walked down the aisle and then slide it right back down to human height for the remainder of the ceremony.PROS:...

Great stability - SO quick to set up

Andreas Winter, B&H Photo
12 June 2013
  • Excerpt: I use the 058 for landscapes. It is quite heavy, but that's just what I am looking for to get excellent stability. It can get quite windy on the west coast of Norway, but so far this tripod does not budge. Great stuff. And with the automatic leg release it is a true joy to work with.
