Good tripod but heavy

  • Excerpt: Ordered the 500DX sight unseen and felt it was to heavy for an old guy to tote around. I already have a video/digital tripod. I really wanted a lighter &quot;pod and I asked for a 330DX as an exchange on Nov 25. It's been 10 days since and can't comment on the 330 because its back-ordered. <br /><br />I guess te exchange went well but have nothing to show as of Dec 5.

  • Excerpt: I bought this Tripod to use with my Canon A2E, 50D and, my 5D. My daughter is taking Photography in collage and snapped it up 3 days after I received it. I have a f 2.8 70-200 lens with a 2x extender (which she is also using) and, she says the tripod is sturdy and no problems at all. she uses it for a wide range of photography and seems to like it alot. <br />When I get it back I'll tell you how I like it but, I may just have to get another one for me. Heh,Heh!!

sturdy and rugged

  • Excerpt: A little heavy, but that is outweighed by the other capabilities of this tripod. Range of height is outstanding with good weight capacity and locks in strong. Good tripod for any terrain and its construction is solid. Would want something slimmer and lighter for travel, although it fit into my checked bag fine on my last flight. I bought this as a versitle all-around tripod and I am not disappointed.

  • Excerpt: I put it to work recently at the Studebaker museum. Lighting was very low with lots of small spotlighting on the cars. Most of my shots were 1 sec. exposures and the results were astounding.

  • Excerpt: Отличное рабочее устройство для студии и выездов (если не в рюкзаке таскать - длинноват да и тяжел если честно)
  • Pros: Надежный. Механика сделана очень качественно. Люфтов нет.
  • Cons: Длинный в сложенном состоянии. Пришлось покупать для путешествий другой.
