Great Tripod

Duke Smith, Adorama

  • 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 absolutely loved the push/pull leg action of my Neotec monopod. So, since I hate the twist locks on my Gitzo's legs, I thought I'd try a Neotec tripod. ( I bought the apparently discontinued National Geographic model which has leg pads and multi-terrain feet.
