Summary: I've enjoyed using the Neotec over the last six months and will no doubt get much more pleasure. It allows fantastic versatility to get to the subject from any angle. I've been able to shoot flora and fungi from ground level and wade into water to get better viewpoints of water. It copes amazingly with uneven terrain. Apart from the legs slipping out when not reuqired and the easy scratched surface I'd heartily recommend this model as a serious support for your kit.
Pros: Superb low level shooting, Quick leg adjustments, Sturdy support
Cons: Scratches easily, Legs don't have locks, Strap has to be taken off when centre column is split
