Great Tripod

Duke Smith, Adorama
28 November 2011
  • Excerpt: Easiest leg/height adjustment of any available tripod. It's a dream to work with. I use it daily and it stays in m car. Combined with my Really Right Stuff ball head it provides a steady platform. A little on the heavy side but worth it.
  • Pros: Easy to set up, Folds Small, Good Stability, Unfolds Quickly

Neatest leg locking system ever!

Adorama
19 April 2010
  • Excerpt: I had reviewed several tripods, perhaps I may have overlooked a few along the way, but the locking system caught my eye. A photographers dream come true. Easy to level, and allows camera mount vertical or horizontally. Push a button, slide the legs up and you're ready to go to the next scene.
  • Pros: Folds Small, Good Stability, Unfolds Quickly

I love this tripod..I love Bogen Imaging

Adorama
3 November 2009
  • Excerpt: I love its ease of leg extension and contraction. I move around a lot changing positions and this helps. One note of caution, the silver buttons that release the legs for contraction are held onto the tripod by two screws.
  • Pros: Good Stability, Unfolds Quickly
  • Cons: Cumbersome, Heavy

Bogen Neotec - good for general purpose

Adorama
10 July 2008
  • Excerpt: The legs are not as helpful as the advertising would suggest. The legs are a little weak making these not as stable as some other more standard tripods. These are a good choice for compact carry or a back up. The biggest down side to this tripod is the extra cost for the novelty of design.
  • Pros: Folds Small, Unfolds Quickly
  • Cons: Legs not that great, So-so stability

Greatest tripod I have ever used

8 November 2007
  • Excerpt: I have been using this tripod, with a Kirk BH-1 ballhead, for past few months now and am completely satisfied with it. It takes seconds to set up and take down, the best leg locking system I have ever seen. I take it backpacking, hiking and even use it for portrait photography.

Best tripod ever!

az, Adorama
8 May 2007
  • Excerpt: This tripod with the neotec leg system is the best tripod you could ever use for hiking. It is just what I was looking for. You literally just pull the legs out to whatever length you need and they lock there. To collapse them, you just push a button and push them in. SOOO nice!
  • Pros: Folds Small, Good Stability, Lightweight, Speed, Unfolds Quickly
