Excerpt: I have had this tripod for 5 or 6 years and find it to be great, I take mostly Wildlife and scenic photos and the tripod is super fast to set up,just pull the legs out to the height you wish and you are ready to go.
Excerpt: I've owned this tripod since it was brand new to the market and I have used it extensively since then. (7+ years now) I've used it indoors and outdoors for portrait photography as well as for hiking and travel photography as the quick setup of the legs was very convenient.
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.
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
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.
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
Excerpt: Better built than I thought. It raises up pretty high for a medium tripod, and also a little heavier; good for stability, but not so much useful for hiking or prolonged use. Never hold/grab/pull tripod by the legs during transportation; they will come out/deploy themselves rapidly, as they are...
