Excerpt: I use this tripod to take product photos and it works really well. It took a while to get used to all of the ways you can adjust the legs, but I like the fact that you can adjust the angles of the legs. That is something I would give this tripod more stars for. It's big and can take up a lot of room so I tend to use a remote to shoot with.
Excerpt: I found the tilt and pan head too heavy and the handles were so long it was hard to carry hiking. I replaced the head with a F2 Flashpoint ball head. It's lighter and less cumbersome.I don't like the location of the locking collar of the center column. You have to remember to lower the center column before closing the legs. The legs have to be spread wide so that you can turn the collar.It's a good tripod over all.
