  • Excerpt: It's the travel tripod- fits right in your on flight suitcase in a niftyittle bag to keep dirt off your clothes- I used it in France for two weeks shooting lots of night shots- it's lightweight but sturdy enough for a Canon 5 D mark II with either a L series wide angle or a 70-300!lighter tele- f/4.5-5.6( not heavy like the L series 70-300 f/2.8 lens).But I had a need to travel lighter and this did great with above mentioned equipment.
  • Pros: Awesome Traveler, Folds Small, Good Stability, Lightweight, Unfolds Quickly
  • Cons: Not For Long Heavy Lens

Hunting

  • Excerpt: I have not taken it to the field but setting it up with my big 16x glass I am fairly pleased. It is light enough to pack and sturdy enough to stabilize in a moderate breeze. Good simple design, it seems robust enough but time will be the judge of durability.

Wish I got the monopod

  • Excerpt: I got the Nikon NI30X50AB Fieldscope ED50 A Spotting Scope for travel. I can hand hold it and use it quicker for birding. Tripod was OK for sea watches, but I could still be faster hand holding the ED 50 for migrating species. Lack of bend in pan handle made it cumbersome. Now, I regret I didn't get a monopod so I can get out of a van with others and quickly unfold to get on a bird. I could also use a monopod/walking stick at times.
  • Pros: Good for travel
  • Cons: Cumbersome, No bend in pan handle

Totally satisfactory

  • Excerpt: I use this tripod with the Sony NEX-VG20. It is perfect for me. Easy to fold and unfold, very stable and not heavy if you compare with others. Small size when it is folded but when it is extended, my camera get higher than me (72"). I would recommend for sure.

Nice lightweight run & gun tripod

  • Excerpt: I bought this tripod to use with my DSLR in situations where I need to pack light and travel by foot. The tripod has performed extremely well and I've even been able to get smooth pans and tilts with a little concentration and finesse. I love how light it is, it feels sturdy enough, and it looks somewhat professional.

Good legs/tripod, not so great head

Seth, B&H Photo
19 September 2011
  • Excerpt: Even though this is a small/inexpensive tripod I intended it for rather serious use. I bought this tripod as a lightweight alternative to my full-size tripod (photo). I found that I often didn't bring the full-size because of weight and size. I figured since I was buying another tripod I might as well have something with fluid motion for video.
  • Pros: Compact, Lightweight
  • Cons: Jerky Movement
