Good medium priced Aluminum Tripod

MIchael, B&H Photo
14 July 2011
  • Excerpt: For the cost, this tripod is well constructed and fairly sturdy. Unfortunately, with the sturdy construction also comes the weight. This is by far one of the heaviest tripods I own. I definately would only consider this model for home/studio stationary use or very (very) light field use.
  • Pros: Attractive design, Quick setup, Sturdy construction
  • Cons: Excessivly long, Heavy, No 38

"Great value for casual photography"

Still Shot, B&H Photo
4 October 2010
  • Excerpt: I purchased this tripod based on its load capacity rating for use with a gimble type lens support and large telephoto lenses. Once in use it's of my opinion that the load rating for this unit may be slightly over-stated.
  • Pros: Folds Small, Unfolds Quickly
  • Cons: Weak Construction

Quick interchange but rough

Color14er, B&H Photo
25 February 2010
  • Excerpt: Its a decent head but its quite heavy and the handles don't feel very secure, they go from nice and tight to very loose in one turn, needs some refinement. The quick release is excellent when I swap between my spotting scope and camera.
  • Pros: Good Footing, Locks In Tight
  • Cons: Heavy, Jerky Movement

Sturdy, but NOT a tripod for telephoto

mds318, B&H Photo
27 August 2009
  • Excerpt: SILK says this tripod can support up to 11 lbs, but in the instructions it says it is not to be used for telephoto lenses, and sure enough, I can't get the panhead to hold a shot. You can literally see it drift no matter how hard you crank down on the lock.
  • Pros: Unfolds Quickly
  • Cons: Heavy

  • Pros: Good Stability, Unfolds Quickly
  • Cons: Heavy

Great tripod, except for head.

SquareHead, B&H Photo
27 January 2009
  • Excerpt: The 700DX tripod would be five stars except for the round quick release plate. The quality and value are excellent, it is as sturdy as they say, and it has a great feel to it. It is indeed massive, but the 74" height is great, especially for 6'2" me who likes to take sky pictures looking through a...
  • Pros: Durable, Good Value, High Quality
  • Cons: Heavy, Poor quick plate design

Solid base but whimpy panhead

Videovision, Adorama
29 December 2008
  • Excerpt: Solid base but panhead doesn't work for camcorders. Lots of levels and controls on panhead, but pan/tilt mechanism is very rough. The small pan/tilt control handle is totally inadequate even when the extension piece from the level control is used.
  • Pros: Good Stability
  • Cons: Heavy

Probleme mit dem Stativkopf

14 November 2011
  • Summary: Bei mir hakt leider die Schnellwechselplatte recht heftig. Musste einige Male schon die Kamera losdrehen ... Stativ OK, auch der Kopf, aber das mit der Platte nervt.
