Excerpt: Solid build with more than enough height for the average shooter definitely something any shooter taller than 6' or so will enjoy. <br /><br />I have been using for 10-30 second exposures with no problem.<br /><br />Only knock is leg position locks. They seem like they could be built a little better but they have not been a problem so far.
Excerpt: I use this tripod for my D7100 & my biggest lens (Nikon 55-300mm) mounted on a Sunpack pistol grip w/ball head (this a legs only tripod). This is a very stable tripod and love that is will adjust above eye-level (I'm 6' tall). Yes it is a little heavy, but that's what you want. Didn't buy it to carry it hiking or anything. Haven't use the low level configuration yet, but like the option. Nice to have a case with it even though it's a little on the cheap side.
Excerpt: Great value. It gets 4 stars because of the angle control switches at the top of the legs that came loose during transportation, however once locked - they stay in place. Also could use a better carrying bag. Overall I'm happy with the product.
Excerpt: My instructor recommended these legs to me as they are the ones he uses. They've proven to be durable and steady. But tripod legs are suppose to be those things. What I like best is that the legs are padded so they are comfortable in tow and it stands tall. For those with bad backs like me who don't like hunching over this is great news. For me the price is right, especially compared to some other legs that do the same thing.
Excerpt: I am an avid photographer taking pictures of Wildlife, Scenery and Micro photography subjects like insects and plants. The 700dx legs provide a very stable platform for my large lenses and have the flexibility to get down low and close for my micro shots with its 2-piece center column and independent legs. The only drawback I see is its weight. If you're hiking around it can get a little heavy, but the padded legs help ease the load.
Excerpt: The weight of these legs is pretty substantial, and the movement is very smooth. The locks seem solid- although I haven't put a lot of wear and tear on them just yet. They come with their own bag, so there isn't any need to purchase a separate bag for your tripod.
