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.
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.
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.
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.
Excerpt: I needed a lightweight tripod with a fluid head for shooting documentary and feature video as I travel. The Video Sprint II was a perfect fit. It was easily the lightest and most compact in the category. The fluid head is good, but not great.
Excerpt: Very satisfied with this one. It is lightweight and compact for travelilng; yet has a great feature set. The head movement is very smooth and not at all jerky. Comes with a case so no need to buy one.
Excerpt: The best features of this tripod are definitely the light weight and the folded length. I needed something for my first international shoot and had explored many different tripods. A friend recommended this one and it worked perfectly.
