Great Tripod

  • Excerpt: I use this tripod during my landscape photography. It is very sturdy and has a very solid feel. I love how the legs easily collapse with just a button push. This tripod would only be better if it was a little lighter.
  • Pros: Good Stability, Unfolds Quickly
  • Cons: Heavy

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

Nice Tripod

  • Excerpt: Easy set up and down. The unit is not the lightest, but is also not too heavy. Solid platform. I recommend the carry bag as it also carrys my Monopod. Very happy so far.

Easy Setup and lightweight

Doug C., B&H Photo
20 October 2010
  • Excerpt: I purchased this tripod for using with a 29" DP Slider and a Canon D7. It is easy to setup and lightweight so it is a good choice for the event filming I do. I wouldn't want to use my EX1-R on it, but it is perfect for the weight of a slider and a DLSR.
  • Pros: Folds Small, Lightweight, Unfolds Quickly

Great idea but problematic

Echo Dude, B&H Photo
9 August 2010
  • Excerpt: The sticks are greasy so it was one more thing to remember when using this tripod. Grease on hands are not a useful addition when run and gun. [...] but the ease of resetting leg height was fantastic.
  • Pros: Folds Small, Good Stability, Lightweight, Unfolds Quickly
  • Cons: Grease is a problem
