Summary: I bought this tripod to use with my canon 450D,I use it indoors and outdoors with my macro lens and my 70-300mm.it is excellent value for money and perfect for someone on a tight budget.It is quite heavy but the upside of that is it is very stable even with my 300mm lens fitted,the 3 section legs help with the stability too.The ball head is easy to use and very smooth in operation.I am very pleased with it and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a good quality...
Pros: Easily Adjusted, Good Footing, Locks In Tight, Smooth Movement
Summary: Very sturdy, well-engineered tripod. Panning control is very smooth, though the tilt controls a little stiff at the moment - I expect this will get better with use and it's only a minor issue anyway. Great bonus for A65 SLT users in that the lcd screen can be used to its full potential while on the tripod.
