Doesn't fit Olympus digital SLR

  • Excerpt: Not a bad tripod, very stable and sturdy. Well-built. Only problem - and it's a major one - is that the quick-release mount included with this model doesn't fit my Olympus e410 - the screw is the wrong thread and the alignment tab on the mount is too close to the screw to fit into the hole on the bottom of the camera. I am going to have to buy another head for the tripod to fit my camera.
  • Pros: Folds Small, Good Stability, Lightweight, Unfolds Quickly
  • Cons: Mount doesn't fit Olympus

Not quite what I expected, but not a complete loss

  • Summary: I wish I could join the bandwagon and recommend this tripod, but I just can't do it. The possibility of failure at any time is a deal breaker.
  • Pros: Great ergonomics, and ease of use. Two piece center column is great.
  • Cons: Breakage caused by cheap plastic bushings, making the tripod best used as a walking stick.
