Excerpt: My photographic focus is travel and architecture. Since 2007, these legs paired with my Manfrotto ball head have served me extremely well. The quick-lock legs are the selling feature. Dealing with flip-lock levers makes me not want to use a tripod. With the quick-lock, you can set up instantly.
Excerpt: My original review is probably someplace among the reviews. I bought it five or six years ago and have been loving it ever since. I have five tripods. One is much taller (and heavier) than this one.
Excerpt: I went on a commercial assignment and another photographer had this tripod and let me use it on my commercial shoot. I love this tripod as to raise it you just pull the legs down to the desired height with no levers to turn.
Excerpt: This tripod is great for when you are on the move, it can be very quickly deployed with the quick release buttons located at the top of the tripod and just as quickly folded down.
I find it to be very stable though it does loose a little of that stability with the centre column extended.
Excerpt: This tripod is so easy to use and adjust when in the pocess of taking pictures. It is a bit long when folded up, but it will be fine. The built-in carrying handle helps. I was able to use the tripod space on my camera bag -Lowepro, but it made the bag a bit too heavy.
Excerpt: This tripod is simply amazing. No matter what the terrain or weather has to offer this product really shines. From rock hillsides to grassy flats set up is fast and efficient. Even in strong winds I have had no problem with stability.
Excerpt: I've used a Gitzo carbon fiber tripod for several years and got this tripod after seeing it demonstrated at a recent photography meeting. The feature that caught my attention was the leg adjustment. Now that I have this tripod, this feature is nice.
Excerpt: I avoided using a tripod before because I couldn't be bothered with clipping and unclipping the legs. Problems solved. This tripod is so quick that its a pleasure to use. Just pull out the legs and your good to go.
